Pick Day, then Warm & Windy
The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for the best day of the week today with sunshine, a light SE breeze and highs near 70 along the lake and near 80 inland with low humidity. Enjoy!!
With the warm front to our north, tonight will be clear and mild with lows in the upper 50s and that warm start means a very warm day on Thursday. Highs will be in the lower 80s along the lake and the upper 80s west of Waukesha. It will be very windy tomorrow with southerly winds gusting over 35 mph that will bring in a little more humidity by afternoon. A cold front will bring strong storms to western Wisconsin during the day on Thursday while we remain sunny, but clouds and a chance for scattered t'storms return Thursday night.
There is no cool air behind this front with highs on Friday still in the mid 70s and lots of sunshine and a light breeze. Saturday is in the 70s with scattered showers and t'storms in the afternoon along another warm front that will bring 80s and possible 90s with sunshine for Sunday. Memorial Day will be warm, in the 80s, but a cold front will bring rain showers throughout the day and then cool Milwaukee back into the 60s by Tuesday.
It will be a warm holiday weekend, but there is a chance for t'storms Saturday and Monday...better chance on Monday.
