*********WIND ADVISORY FROM 8AM-4PM FOR KENOSHA, MILWAUKEE, RACINE, WALWORTH, AND WAUKESHA - SSW 20-30MPH, GUSTING TO 40-45MPH AT TIMES********

After just missing Tuesday's record high, we will see another day with temperatures mainly in the 60s.  There will be more cloud cover as a cold front approaches from the west, bringing a chance for scattered rain showers mainly after 4pm.  It will be a very windy day with winds sustained at 15-30mph from the SSW.  Some gusts could reach 40-45mph during the middle section of the day, which is why a wind advisory is posted for portions of southeastern Wisconsin.

Rain showers become more widespread during the evening and overnight hours, with most locations picking up between a quarter and a half inch of rain.  Temperatures will stay warm, in the mid-30s with breezy conditions.

Thursday will start with a few lingering showers and clouds early before cloud cover decreases, making way for afternoon sunshine.  Temperatures will still be mild for March, but will be cooler behind today's cold front: mid to upper 40s can be expected.

Quiet weather continues as high pressure stays on top of us for Friday and Saturday but highs will stay in the 40s.  50s return on Sunday with a slight chance for evening rain showers.
