The warm-up many have been waiting for is finally here, temperatures will be close to record highs today, 76° in Milwaukee would tie the record set in 1995. Southeast Wisconsin hasn't seen temperatures in the 70s since October 12! Expect plenty of sun and slightly breezy south winds at 10-15mph.
Tonight a weak cold front moves through, that could spark off a shower or isolated thunderstorm tonight, but most of us will see mostly cloudy skies and some patchy fog develop late. Lows will be warm for March, 55° in Milwaukee.
After a slight chance for morning showers and an occasional thunderstorm wears off, we're looking at clearing conditions and slightly cooler temperatures for Thursday. Don't be fooled by that cold front though, temperatures will still be 20-25 degrees warmer than normal for March.
Temperatures continue to stay in the 60s and even some 70s are possible by the end of the weekend, even though there is a chance for scattered showers with an occasional thunderstorm possible over the weekend, it won't be a washout.
