April showers but not a wash-out

CREATED Apr. 6, 2013
  • Print

A warm front will bump us up to 60 degrees today in Milwaukee but it won't quite feel that warm due to the cloud cover and blustery winds.  Rain showers will develop by the late afternoon hours along a cold front.  A thunderstorm or two may even develop along the front as it passes through, bringing wind gusts that may top 35mph.  Any rain shower or thunderstorm ends before midnight and most locations will only see a tenth of an inch in the bucket, certainly not a wash-out.

Sunday will be the better day out of the weekend with more sunshine and lighter winds but temperatures drop into the upper 40s along Lake Michigan.  It will be a seasonable day inland with highs in the low 50s.

We start a relatively active pattern on Monday with off and on chances for rain showers lasting through Thursday.  Highs stay in the low 50s and upper 40s even as drier and sunnier skies return to the forecast by Friday.
