  • The Latest on Wednesday Night/Thursday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Monday looks quiet with mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will still be above average with readings topping out in the upper-30's.

  • Murky Mild Monday

    Several small ripples in the atmosphere over the next couple of days, combined with warmer air approaching Southeast Wisconsin will lead to a good deal of cloudiness to start the work week. A low pressure system will swing through the area tomorrow helping to trigger a rain/snow mix as the day progresses. There could be a bit of slushy accumulation, but it should not be very significant. On the other hand, a potentially huge Winter storm will begin organizing in the Southern Plains and set its sites on our region for Wednesday night through Friday. The precise track of the storm remains uncertain, but some computer models are showing the potential for very heavy snow and blizzard-like conditions for parts of our area. Dreaming of a White Christmas? It might happen in a big way. Have a great Monday!

  • Quiet Monday, Watching Wednesday Night & Thursday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night has mostly cloudy and quiet conditions with a little patchy fog. Lows will bottom out around 30.

  • Morning fog and drizzle

    The storm system that brought most of southeastern Wisconsin wet and dreary conditions will continue to bring clouds and some light rain and drizzle this morning. There will be some foggy spots as well after most of the area caught a quarter to almost a half an inch of rain in the bucket. Temperatures will be decreasing throughout the day but so will the rain chances, drier weather is expected by the evening.

  • A Chance of Light Showers Sunday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will have scattered showers, drizzle and areas of fog. This is due to a low pressure system rolling on through. Overnight lows will be quite mild with reading around 40.

  • Rainy, windy and foggy Saturday

    Keep the umbrella close this weekend, especially today as a large area of low pressure will bring rain chances through a good portion of the weekend. It will be cloudy, rainy and foggy with mild temperatures for December as highs climb to 45 degrees in Milwaukee. Most locations in southeast Wisconsin will pick up a quarter to a half an inch of rain during the day today. Even though rain chances taper off tonight, some spots could still pick up an additional tenth of an inch of rain. The precipitation stays as rain heading into Sunday because overnight lows stay near 40 degrees. Sunday will be the better day out of the weekend with mostly cloudy skies and fewer persistent rain showers but there are still chances for a few spotty showers during the day.

  • A wet weekend ahead for southeast Wisconsin...

    The clouds are here and rain will follow by early morning as a storm heads this way. Overnight low temperatures will be mild in the mid to upper-thirties. A vigorous developing low in the Southwestern part of the country has set its sites on Southeast Wisconsin for Saturday and Sunday. We should see at least a half inch of precipitation on Saturday but with temperatures so warm it will be in the form of rain. The showers will continue into the first half of Saturday night and perhaps some redevelopment early Sunday before winding down with breaks in the clouds later in the day on Sunday. Temperatures on both days will be in the mid-forties.

  • Great Friday...Rainy Saturday

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for sunshine, a light breeze and highs in the mid 40s..a beautiful December day. Clouds will increasing tonight with temperatures in the low to mid 30s and rain showers moving in after 3am.

  • Fine Friday, Soaking Saturday

    Soak up the sun today because it looks like we'll be soaking up something else for tomorrow. The sunny, dry pattern should persist as high pressure holds tight over our region and points to the East. Meantime, a vigorous developing low in the Southwestern part of the country has set its sites on Southeast Wisconsin. It will begin spreading more moisture into the area leading to increasing clouds tonight and showers by morning. The computer models are in good agreement on this being rather significant precipitation, but with temperatures so warm ours will be in the form of rain. The showers will continue into the first half of Saturday night and perhaps some redevelopment early Sunday before winding down with breaks in the clouds later in the day. Have a great Friday and a terrific weekend!

  • More sunshine and mild temperatures on Friday...

    There will be a few high clouds around overnight and temperatures will stay relatively mild with low temperatures in the low-thirties to upper-twenties. There will be some sunshine on Friday but temperatures remain mild as much of the Midwest benefits by southerly winds. The winds will continue south or southeast through saturday and that means the next low pressure system moving in this direction will bring rain to southeast Wisconsin on Friday night and during the day on saturday. Temperatures cool enough by Sunday morning for a little, light rain mixed with snow on Sunday morning. There are no cold blasts in sight for Milwaukee.

  • Sunny & Warm!!!

    High pressure will once again be the dominant factor influencing our weather as it eases to our East and pumps temperatures up on stiff Southwest breezes. Reading will rise more than 10 degrees above the seasonal average with mercury topping out in the mid to upper 40s. We'll have one more quiet day to finish the work week before the dry pattern breaks down. An approaching storm system will increase our clouds Friday night leading to more moisture. With the temperature profile in the atmosphere warm enough the wet weather around here will begin as rain through much of Saturday. Cooling readings could lead to a period of some mixed precipitation by Sunday as it diminishes. Have a great Thursday!

  • The warm air moves back in for Thursday in Milwaukee...

    The skies will be clear to partly cloudy overnight but southwesterly winds will keep temperatures rather mild with overnight low temperatures between 30 and 34 degrees. With high pressure at the surface and to our Southeast, winds will be just a bit breezy from time to time and skies will be mostly sunny. Dry air is expected to remain in place through Friday with plenty of sun as a disturbance passes well to our North. Another developing low pressure system will lead to more clouds later on Friday and some precipitation in time for the weekend. At this point, it should be in the form of rain with a period of a rain/snow mix on Sunday morning, but no major snow accumulation is expected anywhere in southeast Wisconsin.

  • Sunny and Warming Up

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for a warming trend and lots of sunshine thanks to a warm front to our north and SW winds at 10-20 mph for today, tomorrow and Friday. Highs today will be in the lower 40s and mid 40s for Thursday and Friday with lows near 30.

  • Warmer Midweek Wednesday

    Upper level winds will "flatten out" today into what's called a "Zonal" flow, leading to more mild air. Temperatures also moderate nicely to about 40 degrees today, surpassing the average of 34 degrees. With high pressure at the surface, to our Southeast, winds will be just a bit breezy from time to time and skies will be brighter, yet again. Dry air is expected to remain in place through tomorrow with plenty of sun as a disturbance passes well to our North. Another developing low pressure system will lead to more clouds on Friday and some precipitation in time for the weekend. At this point, it should be in the form of rain or perhaps periods of a rain/snow mix, but no major snow accumulation is expected. Have a great Wednesday!

  • Get ready for a warmer Wednesday in Milwaukee...

    Winds shifting around to the Southwest and a bit of a ridge in the jet stream will lead to a warming trend over the next several days. Tonight will be colder with a few flurries early and low temperatures between 24 and 17 degrees. We could touch 40 degrees by Wednesday and continue in the low to mid 40s heading into next weekend. There was no accumulation at Mitchell International in Milwaukee on Tuesday night, and that means our record breaking streak of consecutive days without snow will keep climbing and is currently at 282 days. The next storm system hits Friday night and Saturday and most of the precipitation will be rain.

  • Chilly, Clouds and Flurries

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for clouds to increase and isolated flurries or very light snow this afternoon and evening with a dusting of accumulation at best. Highs will be in the lower 30s, but a gusty SW wind will keep wind chills in the teens and 20s.

  • Few Flakes with a Sun/Cloud Mix

    High pressure pushes in to our South today and begins to offer brighter conditions. We'll have a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures near seasonal averages in the mid 30s. A couple of waves in the mid levels of the atmosphere could trigger some periods of snow showers or flurries early and again later tonight, but no significant accumulation is expected. Dry weather looks to continue through the balance of the work week with growing sunshine on the way, too. Winds shifting around to the Southwest and a bit of a ridge in the jet stream will lead to a warming trend over the next several days. We could touch 40 degrees by Wednesday and continue in the low to mid 40s heading into next weekend. Assuming no accumulation at Mitchell International in Milwaukee, that would mean our record breaking streak of consecutive days without snow will keep climbing.

  • Drier with a return of December-like temperatures

    After the northwestern half of southeastern Wisconsin picked up one to two inches of snow Sunday and the southeastern side caught mainly rain in the bucket, we will see drier skies for this Monday. And since Milwaukee only saw 0.01" of snow at the airport, we now have the longest streak of days without measurable snow at 280 days and we will add to that this week. Partly cloudy skies with seasonable temperatures in the mid-30s will be the story today. Overnight temperatures will be seasonable at the lakefront tonight, in the low 20s but colder lows in the teens are expected inland.

  • Bit of a Chilly Monday Mix

    It was a close call with snow accumulating in our Northern viewing area, but none in Milwaukee, we have officially shattered the long time record for consecutive days without snow. As of today, it's been 280 days since there has been any measurable snow at Mitchell International Airport. Now, it appears that we'll pad the record with at least a week of additional snow-free forecasts. On the back side of that departing weekend storm, we'll see some scattered snow showers or flurries and even some early morning freezing drizzle mixing in. High pressure begins to take over tomorrow ushering in a dry completion of the work week with growing sunshine. Temperatures will also moderate through the week, reaching the low 40s by Wednesday.
