We get a break from the active and wet weather for the weekend. In the wake of the rainy area of low pressure we will start out with mostly cloudy skies but high pressure moves in to help wipe away some of the cloud cover by evening. Temperatures will be seasonable and mild in the mid-50s as the wind eventually switches to being from the west by the end of the day.
Tonight will be mainly clear and cool, especially inland where temperatures will drop into the mid-30s in Waukesha and stay closer to 40 degrees along Lake Michigan. A bit of patchy fog is possible.
Sunday will be the best day of the weekend as a warm front helps bump temperatures up into the low to mid-60s with mostly sunny skies. The wind will be breezy at times but it's a warming wind from the south.
Enjoy the dry weekend because by Monday morning rain returns to the forecast and we could see a good half an inch of still much needed rain by Tuesday morning. Showers remain in for Tuesday but should taper off by Wednesday. Highs will stay above average, in the mid to upper 60s until a cold front brings a shot of cooler air back by Thursday night. Highs struggle to hit 50 degrees on Friday and Saturday.
