Back to the reality of March

CREATED Mar 26, 2012

After a mild weekend with temperatures in the 60s, southeast Wisconsin is in for a quick snap back to reality.  Temperatures today will be 15-20 degrees cooler than Sunday, highs will only be in the mid-40s but that's actually normal for March.  It will just feel colder under mostly to partly cloudy skies because it's been more than two weeks since we've had "normal" temperatures and the breezy wind off the lake at 10-20mph will not help either.

Tonight a warm front will move in, bringing a chance for showers and occasional thunderstorms late tonight.  Temperatures on Tuesday will bounce back into the low 60s as a result of strong winds from the south at 15-20mph, gusting to 30mph.  A trailing cold front swings through Tuesday afternoon and that adds another chance for showers and thunderstorms through Tuesday night.

Wednesday will still be breezy but drier and we'll see a bit more sunshine.  Seasonably warm temperatures stick around for the rest of the 7 day forecast.  The next best chance for rain comes Friday night and into Saturday.
