Grab the umbrella but it won't be a washout

A cold front will move through southeast Wisconsin today but before it does that, temperatures will climb into the low 80s under partly cloudy skies.  There is a slight chance for a few sprinkles before noon, but most of us stay dry this morning.  You'll want the umbrella by your side this afternoon as he cold front swings through, bringing a chance of rain and a few thunderstorms into the forecast.  Not everyone will see rain as this is a weak front as far as precipitation goes, many locations will only see a tenth of an inch of rain.  Temperatures will drop into the 60s after 5pm, so you will feel the impact of the front after it passes through.  Skies clear tonight as temperatures drop into the low 50s with a breezy NE wind at 10-15mph.

A cool area of high pressure moves in from Canada to keep us seasonably cool but sunny on Monday.  That starts a relatively dry spell with sunshine expected through Wednesday when temperatures climb back into the 80s.

Thursday and Friday will be hot days with temperatures in the 90s in some locations with spotty chances for rain and thunderstorms both days, but it will certainly not be a washout.
