A Chance of Rain & Snow Showers Tonight

CREATED Dec 7, 2012
  • Print

The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Friday will be quiet with a slight chance of a morning sprinkle. Highs will top out in the low-40's with partly to mostly cloudy skies.


Tonight, a weak low pressure system passes to our south. As it does, a few scattered rain or snow showers are possible. If we see any accumulation, it will be light. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid-30's for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee temperatures, and upper-20's for Waukesha and inland temperatures.

We will be between systems on Saturday during the day, so that means we should stay dry. Highs will top out in the low-40's with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

Saturday night, the next storm system will be approaching, but not quite here yet. We could see a little light rain or snow late. Lows will bottom out in the low-30's

The next, more significant system rolls through on Sunday. Of course, the temperature and position of this low pressure is going to be key here. As of the latest data, it will be wrapping in some milder air in our area. This means that in southeast Wisconsin, the bulk of this precipitation may fall as rain. With the lower morning temperatures, we may start off with snow, but this will change to mainly rain the further south you live. Further to the north, you'll probably mix in a little more snow. There, by the end of the day, your total accumulation could be up to an inch north, with lesser accumulation the further south you live. By the time the colder air wraps in, the main part of this system will be out of here.  Again, that as of the latest data. We have over 1,000 miles to go and 2 days left before it gets here.

Any rain or snow shower ends Sunday evening as this system pulls away. Overnight lows will finally start to cool off with readings in the mid-30's for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee temperatures, and upper-20's for Waukesha and inland temperatures.

Monday will be colder and breezy with a few stray flurries. Highs will top out in the lower-30's.
