Another taste of summer

CREATED Mar 18, 2012

We could break more records again in southeast Wisconsin today as temperatures soar into the upper-70s and even 80s.  It will be mostly sunny with a light wind from the south, though turning southeast in the afternoon along the lake, keeping lakeshore communities cooler in the afternoon.  Tonight a few clouds roll in but temperatures remain incredibly mild, some patchy fog may develop late.

Monday temperatures will cool into the 70s (still 30° warmer than normal for March) and there will be a chance for scattered showers and an occasional thunderstorm in the afternoon with more cloud cover.  Temperatures jump back up under plentiful sunshine on Tuesday before we start a real cooling pattern that is also an active pattern.  Expect occasional showers and thunderstorms off and on from Wednesday night through Saturday morning.  Temperatures will dip into the low 50s by next weekend, and yes, that's still warmer than we're supposed to be.
