Showers and Storms Taper off Late

CREATED Apr 15, 2012

We saw our initial batch of storms moving through during the later afternoon hours. Luckily the clouds held for most of the day stopping the lower levels of the atmosphere from getting too warm. That was key in limiting supercellular development. The batch of storms that has been working its way through parts of the area has been strong, but this is not a major severe weather outbreak. These storms have actually helped again along with the clouds in mixing up the atmosphere for the time being, limiting more major development.

We are not out of the woods though. There is still a slight risk of severe thunderstorms. What that means is that anything that does develop has a slight risk of containing some hail or high winds. Not everyone will see severe weather tonight. The main area of focus is still out in Iowa and Minnesota. Once this develops, it will track its way into parts of Wisconsin. This area may completely miss southern Wisconsin, but it bears watching. Overnight, most of the severe threat should be over. Again, not everyone will see severe weather.

Get ready for much cooler temperatures with plenty of wind on Monday. Highs will only top out in the mid-50's before falling into the 40's as the day progresses. We could see a few scattered showers or sprinkles, but it wouldn't be an all-day rain.

Most of the rain chances will work out of here on Monday night. Get ready for another frost, but this it's not uncommon at this time of year.

Tuesday looks quiet and dry. Highs will top out around 50 for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee temperatures, and mid-50's for Waukesha's temperature and inland areas. 

There's a good chance of rain on Wednesday, but there won't be any big warm-ups or cool-downs for this upcoming week.
