The sunshine returns to the forecast but just briefly and temperatures are going to stay below average in the 40s today. Clouds increase tonight as the winds switch to being off the lake, keeping lake shore lows near freezing and inland temperatures dip into the upper 20s.
Sunday will be windy but warmer with highs in the low 50s as a warm front moves in. That front could spark off a few showers, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours but not a lot of accumulation is expected. We hit 60 degrees on Monday before a cold front swings through, bringing another chance of rain by Monday evening. Rain chances continue on Tuesday, bringing a quarter to a half an inch of rain into already swollen rivers.
Drier but colder air returns for Wednesday and Thursday before rain chances return by Friday. Even though there are several chances for rain in the forecast it will not be as wet as the past two weeks because rain totals and the duration of the rain will not be as great. This slightly drier weather will help drop river levels in Jefferson, Kenosha, Racine and Waukesha counties where Flood Warnings are still in effect.
