MILWAUKEE- The wind will start to turn south to southwest today and that will start a warm-up for much of Wisconsin. We should see high temperatures near fifty degrees today, in the low or mid-fifties Friday and around sixty degrees both Saturday and Sunday. What will help the temperature swing is sunshine, but that has been hard to come by over the past few days. While one system dies out today high clouds move in from the next system to the west, but we should still see some sunshine this afternoon in Milwaukee.
Clouds are not unusual for the month of November in Milwaukee, as this is one of the cloudiest months of the year along with December. One average close to two-thirds of this month is overcast on average with nineteen cloudy days expected. The storm track is around Wisconsin in November and that brings in clouds, along with cold air masses that bring instability and of course, the warmer Lake Michigan that can give southeast Wisconsin a cloud deck at times.
There are two distinct cloud seasons in Milwaukee, one defined by more than half of the month receiving overcast skies and the other by less than half of the days overcast on average. The cloud season begins this month and runs all winter season and through April.
