Warmer weather is here just in time for the weekend with highs in the low 50s today and upper 50s on Sunday. After some morning fog in extreme southeastern Wisconsin, most of the area will see mostly cloudy skies as a warm front moves through. That front will spark off some sprinkles and light rain showers mainly after 5pm with rain chances coming to an end around 2am, most locations pick up a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain. Overnight lows will be in the upper 40s, that's warmer than our average high temperature for early December.
Sunday will be the best day out of the weekend with decreasing cloud cover, warmer temperatures and drier conditions. Monday will be the warmest day of the 7 Day Planner with highs touching 60 degrees but it will be breezy with increasing clouds and a chance for rain showers.
A cold front drops us back into the 40s for Tuesday and the colder air settles in for Wednesday with highs only reaching the upper 30s but it will be mostly sunny and dry both days. The next storm system moves in on Thursday evening, bringing rain back into the forecast through Friday as temperatures climb back into the 40s. If we get through December 9th with no measurable snow in Milwaukee, it will break the record for the longest period with no measurable snow at 280 days.
