  • Snowy storm slides to our south but we still get some flakes

    A few flakes are in the forecast for southeastern Wisconsin as a massive snow system passes just to our south. Spring lovers will be happy to miss out on the 6-10" of snow that is expected from Missouri to Indiana but we will still see close to an inch of the white stuff along the state line and near a half inch in Milwaukee. This will be more of a broom snow instead of a shoveling snow, especially in the north where only a light dusting, if that, is expected. It will stay cold with highs in the mid-30s and a stronger NE wind at 10-20 mph.

  • A Little Snow for Some, Sunday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night should be relatively quiet. With northeasterly winds, we could see a few lake effect flurries or snow showers, but most of the night will be fine. Overnight lows in the mid-20's for our lakefront communities and low-20's for Waukesha's temperatures and inland areas.

  • A fine day for February... too bad it's March!

    Today will be the best day of the weekend with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and light winds. Temperatures will be fine for February but it's March so southeastern Wisconsin will stay ten degrees below average.

  • Chilly Sunshine

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for more sunshine and light wind, but continued cold conditions with highs in the low to mid 30s. Tonight will be quiet and cold with a clear sky and lows in the teens away from the lake and lower 20s along the water.

  • Minor Moderation

    Another bright, cold day is on the way courtesy of high pressure moving through the region. Winds have continued to diminish, so we shouldn't experience quite the chill of the last several days, but our readings will nonetheless remain significantly below the seasonal average maximum of 45 degrees. Temperatures to day should top out close to freezing and pick up a few degrees over the weekend climbing into the mid 30s. A storm system skirting just to our South will lead to a few more clouds on Saturday and even more grey skies on Sunday with some patchy flurries or snow showers mainly South, especially late, but at this point, the weekend looks mainly dry. Enjoy today's sunshine and have a great weekend!

  • The big chill will stick around through the weekend...

    Late season arctic air has a grip on Wisconsin and will continue to keep the chill here through the weekend. There will be clear skies overnight and plenty of sunshine on Friday. Overnight low temperatures will be cold from the middle teens near the lakeshore to single digits well inland. The quiet and cold conditions should persist through the start of the weekend, but niortheast winds on Sunday could touch off a few snow showers from Lake Michigan during the day. More flurries are possible on Monday and the chillu air will continue with high temperatures in the mid-thirties through Tuesday.

  • Cold Sunshine

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for more sunshine, light winds and cold temperatures with highs in the upper 20s with wind chills in the teens.

  • The Big Chill...Again!

    High pressure takes hold of our weather and that signals a return to even brighter skies. All that sunshine will have very little impact on temperatures, though. Readings will remain well below the seasonal average high of 44 degrees. Today's mercury will rise beyond yesterday, though, approaching the 30 degree mark, but wind chills will dive as low as 5 below zero early in the day. The quiet and cold conditions should persist through most of the weekend. Enjoy all the sunshine and have a great Thursday!

  • The big March chill continues today and Friday....

    Skies clear out tonight and temperatures will drop once again across the area. Temperatures will range from six to eleven degrees across southeast Wisconsin with wind chilss down to five degrees below zero. The cold air will stick around tomorrow, but with some sunshine we should see high temperatures near thirty degrees. As low pressure stacked in the atmosphere to our East finally departs the region, high pressure will build in and we'll finish the work week with plenty of sunshine. Friday's high temperature jumps to the mid-thirties and then into the upper-thirties for the weekend. The next threat for snow hits on Sunday. Unfortunately there will be no relief from the cold air until the first week of April.

  • Cold...Light Snow

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for a cold first day of Spring with highs struggling to hit 20 and wind chills near 0 all day. Clouds will also be on the increase with a chance for flurries or very light snow showers through the evening hours with less than a half inch of accumulation.

  • Wintery Start To Spring!

    The first day of Spring will start bright but that will be a bit deceptive as a Wintery reminder arrives later in the afternoon. A weak disturbance will slide South through the Badger State and trigger some scattered snow showers which should arrive around here in time for the afternoon and evening commute. Many locations will see a dusting to less than an inch of accumulation. That's not much, but it's enough to cause some headaches on the roads. The biting winds will continue to gust to about 30 miles per hour and we'll face wind chills below zero at times through tomorrow. As low pressure stacked in the atmosphere to our East finally departs the region, high pressure will build in and we'll finish the work week with plenty of sunshine. Unfortunately there will be no such relief from the cold air. Stay warm & have a great first day of Spring!

  • Very cold air settles in for the first day of spring...

    Clear skies tonight and brisk westerly winds will keep temperatures in the single digits and wind chills to five below zero at times. Spring begins at 6:02 am on Wednesday but high temperatures under partly cloudy skies will barely reach twenty degrees or so. Wednesday night will also be very chilly as skies clear out once again. Temperatures will warm back to the thirties for Friday and the weekend, but that is still well below normal for this time of the year. The next chance for more snow or a rain and snow mix moves in on Sunday.

  • COLD WIND!

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for cold sunshine and gusty winds up to 45 mph with wind chills near 0 all day. Tonight will be partly cloudy, windy and cold with lows in the single digits and wind chills of -5 to -12.

  • Feeling like January in March

    A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for all of southeast Wisconsin until 10am as blowing and drifting snow is still possible this morning. Add that to the precipitation that froze on the roadways overnight and there will be some slick spots as flurry chances taper off by midday. It will be chilly for March with highs only climbing into the 20s, not to mention a strong westerly wind making it feel like we are stuck in the low teens. Skies start to clear throughout the afternoon but that won't make it feel any warmer. Without a thick blanket of clouds overnight, digits drop to 10 degrees along the lakefront and singles are expected inland. Again the wind will make it feel worse, wind chill values will drop below zero for most of southeastern Wisconsin.

  • Very chilly air rolls in for this time of the year...

    The cold front has passed through and the wind picks up from the west to northwest and the temperatures drop dramatically tonight. High temperatures drop into the twenties for tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday so get ready for some very chilly air for this time of the year. There may be a few flurries tomorrow and Wednesday with the colder air and winds will stay brisk through Wednesday also, taking wind chills to below zero at times. Temperatures will warm back to the thirties for the weekend, but that is still well below normal for this time of the year.

  • Snowy Start & Biting Cold Coming!

    After some sunshine on Sunday, yet another disturbance approaching from the West will lead to thickening clouds through the day with snow developing around the area. This will be a heavy, wet type of snow, but it won't accumulate to more than an inch or two. We'll notice a brief uptick in temperatures with readings rising to the mid 30s, though that's still below average for this time of year. As the precipitation tapers off with the system's departure there will be some clearing by tomorrow. Quieter conditions should persist tomorrow and Wednesday with readings once again taking a step backwards reaching only about 20 degrees on the first day of Spring, Wednesday. Have a great Monday!

  • Some Snow Monday, then Cold

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night will have clouds will be back on the increase with the next storm system heading our way. Most of the night will be quiet. Overnight lows in the mid-20's for our lakefront communities and low-20's for Waukesha's temperatures and inland areas.

  • More sun for St. Patrick's Day

    Top O' the mornin' to ya! Expect more sunshine throughout this St. Patrick's Day, especially away from Lake Michigan because lake clouds and even a light lake flurry is possible along the shoreline. Temperatures stay cold for March in southeastern Wisconsin with highs barely scraping the 30 degree mark. Compare that to last year when temps soared to 74 degrees, just missing the record high of 75 degrees in 2009. Thus the luck of the Irish in terms of a warm St. Paddy's Day has run out.

  • Quiet Sunday, Some Snow Monday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will be quiet, but cold. Clouds will be on the decrease with overnight lows in the upper-teens for our lakefront communities and mid-teens for Waukesha's temperatures and inland areas.

  • A few flurries linger but otherwise a cold weekend

    Most locations in southeast Wisconsin picked up an inch or less from Friday's weak storm system that rolled through. A few flurries are still possible throughout this Saturday and maybe even a brief period of freezing drizzle but accumulation will be light. It will be cold for March with highs just grazing the freezing mark and feeling colder with a breeze at 10-15mph. Any precipitation chance ends by 5pm and then the skies start to clear as high pressure moves in. That helps drop digits overnight into the teens so it will be a chilly start to St. Patrick's Day. At least we'll see more sunshine on Sunday and lighter winds but the cold stays as highs barely reach 30 degrees. An eventual easterly wind may bring a few clouds or a flurry at the lakefront but most of us will see more of the golden orb.
