  • Cooler Lakeside, but a Nice Stretch

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will be fairly nice compared to the last few days. We'll see lows in the mid-40's with a little patchy fog late.

  • Summer-like air blows in for Tuesday on a strong southerly wind...

    Warmer and more humid air rolls toward southeast Wisconsin overnight. There may be a shower or thunderstorm overnight also with some strong thunderstorms in southwest Wisconsin. Low temperatures will be mild for this time of the year in the mid to upper-fifties. The warmest temperatures of he year are moving in for Tuesday with high temperatures around eighty degrees in most locations. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible late on Tuesday, Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Cooler air hits by Thursday and look for a cloudy, cool and wet pattern for the end of the week and weekend.

  • Scattered Showers or a Storm, Monday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night Sunday night will be okay for the most part, though there will be a slight chance of a shower overnight to the northwest. Temperatures will be mild with lows in the mid-40's.

  • More clouds but still pleasant

    A large disturbance is passing to our south, bringing some cloud cover on this Sunday morning but skies will be clearing from northwest to southeast. Temperatures will again be cooler along Lake Michigan, in the upper 50s, while inland areas reach the mid-60s. Clouds increase tonight and lows will be mild for April, in the 40s.

  • Nice Sunday, but Cooler by Lake Michigan

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will be nice and quiet. Overnight lows will bottom out in the low-40's under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.

  • Pleasant weekend though cooler by the lake

    We finally broke into the upper 60s on Friday after a spring that seemed like it would never start. Pleasant weather continues today with mostly sunny skies and light winds. The main difference today will be the temperatures: it will be cooler along Lake Michigan due to an afternoon lake breeze kicking in. Highs will be in the upper 50s lakeside and mid-60s can be expected inland. A few high, thin clouds move in tonight and temperatures will be seasonal in the low 40s overnight. Temperatures bump up slightly on Sunday but it will again be cooler by the lake as winds will be from the east most of the day.

  • A big weekend warm-up...

    Warmer air has settled into southeast Wisconsin and temperatures will be in the sixties and seventies through the weekend and early next week. Remember, however the lake is very cold and temperatures will be a little cooler right at the lakeshore. Skies tonight will be clear to partly cloudy tonight and that also means plenty of sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday. Seventuies away from the lake are on tap for Monday and tuesday, also.

  • Warmer air is finally on the way...

    Warm air is surging this way from the southwest as the winds have already turned from that direction. High temperatures in the plains are in the sixties and seventies and we will see the sixties by Friday. The wind direction will stay from the west to southwest right through the weekend, so the mild air will also stick around. There should also be sunshine at times right through the weekend, also. We could see temperatures near seventy degrees away from the lake on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. There are only a few small chances for rainfall through early next week.

  • One more cool day before a big warm-up...

    A few rain or snow showers are on the way overnight for southeast Wisconsin as a cold front moves across the state. There should be no accumulation and any precipitation will be below a tenth of an inch. The clouds and sprinkles move out quickly on Thursday morning and sunshine returns along with the cooler air once again. the winds will turn to the southwest by Thursday night and that will begin a warm-up for Friday that will continue into the weekend and early next week. We have a chance for high temperatures around seventy degrees on Sunday and Monday.

  • Cooler tomorrow but a warm-up is near...

    The front has passed through and cooler air has settled into southeast Wisconsin. The colder air will stick around through Thursday before warmer air rolls this way on Friday. Temperatures on Wednesday will be in the upper-forties and only around fifty degrees on Thursday. There should be plenty of sunshine both days and right on intio the weekend. There is a small chance for a few snow or rain showers on Wednesday night and very early Thursday morning, but anything that falls would be light. The warm-up comes in on Friday.

  • Spring, sunshine and 60!

    Spring is back in southeastern Wisconsin with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and temperatures rising to near 60 degrees. There will be a stronger wind from the south but that will help keep us warmer than we were over the weekend.

  • Milder Monday, Some Rain Tuesday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night has that front just to our north, so I can't rule out the slight chance of a sprinkle or light shower late. Overnight lows will botton out in the upper-30's under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Most of the night will be fine.

  • Mostly dry for Sunday

    We will see more clouds in southeastern Wisconsin on this Sunday as a warm front moves through this morning. That may bring a stray shower or brief period of a light wintry mix to the north and west but the majority of the day will be dry. Temperatures will increase into the upper 40s under a breezy SE wind at 10-15 mph. Mostly cloudy skies will blanket overnight lows in the upper 30s to 40 degrees along Lake Michigan.

  • A Small Chance of Precip, Monday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will be fine. The only thing you might notice are those clouds on the increase. Overnight lows will drop to around 30.

  • Sunshine for Saturday!

    The sunshine returns to the forecast but just briefly and temperatures are going to stay below average in the 40s today. Clouds increase tonight as the winds switch to being off the lake, keeping lake shore lows near freezing and inland temperatures dip into the upper 20s.

  • The weekend starts out cold on Saturday...

    The snow showers wind down early tonight with no accumulation, and the winds slowly wind down also. Clouds will stick around for the first part of Friday night but there will be clearing by the morning hours. There should be plenty of sunshine on Saturday but the chilly air mass has settled in and high temperatures will be in the middle forties, about ten degrees below where we should be on April 20th. Another storm system rolls this way for Sunday bringing the chance for widely scattered rauin showers, but it doesn't look like a major rain threat for our swollen rivers. Rain chances will be around to start the week on Monday and Tuesday.

  • Whippin' Winds & Temps Tumble

    As the big storm system which produced all the flooding rains pulls away, we'll still see some lingering, much less significant rain and snow showers as the day progresses. The lighter precipitation will persist through the early evening with much chillier temperatures than yesterday afternoon. Then as high pressure builds in, we'll see the clouds roll out overnight setting up the driest, brightest day in the coming week. Saturday promises to be mostly sunny but very cool followed by a partly cloudy day on Sunday with slightly warmer readings in the mid 50s.

  • Strong winds brings in colder air for Milwaukee on Friday...

    The heavy rain is gone for now and only some drizzle remains. Strong winds behind a cold front overnight will bring in drier air and colder temperatures for Friday. There could still be a few brief, light rain showers on Friday under mostly cloudy skies, but the big weather word for Friday is still windy. Winds will be from the west and strong gusting to nearly forty miles per hour. High pressure slowly takes over for the weekend so dry weather continues hrough late Sunday before we watch the next storm system moving in our direction.

  • Heavy Rain

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for heavy rain overnight with 1-2" of accumulation by morning as a warm front lifts to the north. In addition, temperatures will rise into the mid 50s by morning.

  • Colder, breezy and wet with flooding concerns rising

    Wet weather returns to the forecast on this Wednesday another large storm system moves into southeastern Wisconsin. Rain showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread and intensify as the day goes on with a slight chance of a stronger storm along the Illinois state line.
