  • The weekend is looking rather chilly for Milwaukee...

    Light snow with some drizzle and freezing drizzle rolls in overnight from the northwest. Colder readings sweeping in overnight will lead to a widespread transition to snow which should continue during the night. A couple inches or so of snow may accumulate North with much less farther to the South. Low temperatures will be in the middle twenties. Some lingering clouds may produce patchy flurries on Saturday with more sunshine for Sunday. The cold air returns for the weekend, again, too! High temperatures for saturday will be in the low thirties and around thirty-three degrees on Sunday.

  • Wintery Weather Ahead

    Yet another disturbance comes at us from the Northwest today, but this one promises to pack a slightly stronger punch. Look for more clouds and temperatures a couple degrees higher than yesterday in the mid 30s. This is a rather tricky forecast as we remain on the border for a transition of precipitation which will develop through the mid morning increasing by the afternoon. It should begin as snow and stay that way well to the north around Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties. Temperatures should support a mix of rain and snow across the central sections of the area, along the I-94 corridor, with rain farther to the South. Colder readings sweeping in through the evening will lead to a widespread transition to snow which should continue during the first part of the night. A couple inches or so of snow may accumulate North with much less farther to the South. Some lingering clouds may produce patchy flurries on Saturday with more sun for Sunday. The cold air returns for the weekend, again, too! Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!

  • More cold and a new storm system for Friday...

    Clouds have settled in which are the first sign of a new storm system for Friday and Friday night. Overnight low temperatures will be in the mid to upper-twenties across southeast Wisconsin. This next system is slightly more vigorous and should bring precipitation by Friday afternoon. The temperature profile in the atmopshere should support a rain/snow mix at the start, but cold air filtering in behind the disturbance will mean a change over to snow by Friday evening with snow tapering off late Friday night. There could be some areas with accumulation of a couple inches, particularly to the North of Milwaukee. Seasonally warmer air works in briefly with high temperatures in the upper-thirties for Friday before readings drop off back to the low-30's with a much drier weekend.

  • More Cold Weather

    One year ago today it was 78 degrees, but the forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for continued cold weather and more clouds today. Flurries are expected west of Milwaukee and highs will only be in the low to mid 30s....7 degrees below the normal high.

  • Some Sun, Rain, Snow, But No Warmth

    There continues to be a rather progressive pattern in the upper atmosphere which leads to frequent, typically little pesky disturbances rolling through the region. We'll experience that over the next couple of days. The first will begin spreading some flurries or patchy very light snow into Western and Southwestern sections of our area as we work through the morning and early afternoon. There's plenty of dry air to overcome before seeing the flakes fly, which is why it may take some time to see the clouds produce anything of note. Look for periods of sun especially East and North. The next system is slightly more vigorous and should arrive Friday afternoon. The temperature profile in the atmopshere should support a rain/snow mix at the start, but cold air filtering in behind the disturbance will mean a change over to snow by Friday evening with snow tapering off late Friday night. There could be some areas with accumulation of a couple inches, particularly to the North of Milwaukee. Seasonally warmer air works in briefly with highs near 40 for Friday before reading drop off back to the low 30s over a drier weekend. Have a great Thursday!

  • The cold sticks around with another chance for rain or snow...

    The skies will remian mostly clear overnight following a welcome day of sunshine on Wednesday. Low temperatures will be in the mid to upper-teens across southeast Wisconsin. Clouds will stream in by morning and light snow moves in by late morning on Thursday. Look for a couple of small disturbances bringing a bit of snow and a rain snow mix Thursday and again later on Friday, though these doesn't appear to be very significant events, with less than a half inch possible mid-day Thursday and more rain han snow on Friday. The weekend will remain mainly cold in Milwaukee.

  • Sunny ,but Cold

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for a blue sky for the first time since last Friday, but it will be cold with highs near 30 and wind chills in the teens. Clouds increase tonight with lows in the teens, and Thursday will be cloudy with scattered light snow showers before noon with less than an inch of accumulation. As temperatures get into the mid 30s, the snow will start to mix with rain in the afternoon.

  • Brighter & Breezy, But Cold

    Surface high pressure builds in today, leading to much brighter skies. We'll remain stuck in a Northwest wind flow. That chilly breeze will once again suppress temperatures. Maximum mercury will be just below freezing, well short of the 41 degree average for this time of year. Milder air swings back into our area by week's end with seasonal readings. After a quiet day, look for a couple of small disturbances bringing a bit of snow and a rain snow mix Thursday and again later on Friday, though these doesn't appear to be very significant events. Enjoy the sunshine!

  • More cold heading into southeast Wisconsin on Wednesday...

    The upper air is coming in from the northwest and cold air continues to pour into the state. The wintry jet stream will also bring more low prssure systems with snow or rain and snow. Clouds hang in tonight with a few flurries at times but no accumulation is expected. The flurries may stick around in the morning but we should get some sunshine breaking through later in the day. Another low pressure system coming in from the northwest will bring alittle rain or a rain and snow mix back to Milwaukee late Thursday, Thursday night and Friday. The chilly air will stick around through the weekend.

  • Another round of light snow late this afternoon

    A few slivers of sunshine are possible before another wave of light snow moves through late this afternoon and into the evening hours. This round will bring a light dusting up to a half an inch of snow but it will occur during the evening commute, creating a few slick spots. Temperatures stay cool for March, in the low 30s, and it will feel colder due to a westerly wind at 10-15mph.

  • Snow Showers, Breezy, & Cold!

    With low pressure stacked through the atmosphere and little disturbances rotating through the region, we'll have periods of snow showers early and again late today with plenty of clouds and breezy conditions in between. Accumulations should be piddly with less than an inch over all through tonight, but the timing during both morning and afternoon commutes could mean some slick conditions. With a continued Northwest wind flow, our temperatures will remain well below the seasonal average highs in the low 40s, but some moderation will return by later in the week. Have a great Tuesday and stay warm!

  • Flurries..Colder

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for flurries and occasional light snow to continue overnight with no accumulation, and low temperatures in the mid 20s. Wind chills will be in the teens by morning.

  • A Few Rain and Snow Showers

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Monday, has a few flurries, sprinkles, rain and snow showers with little to no accumulation. Highs Today will top out around 40, with cooler readings to the west and north.

  • Misty Monday morning

    A very misty start to this Monday in southeast Wisconsin and areas of fog will be dense this morning due to the weekend rain and melting snow. A few light rain showers are possible and they will mix with snow as the day goes on from northwest to southeast. Snow accumulation will be less than an inch through much of the area with just a bit more expected in the northwest. A huge swath of snow just missed us, bringing 6-8" from Iowa to parts of central Wisconsin.

  • Rain, Drizzle, Fog then a Chance of Snow Showers

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night, has more rain, drizzle and fog around the area. Now here's the kicker. The further you live to the northwest, the better your chance of this changing over to snow. The computer models have the bulk of this barely missing us, but it's going to be a close call. Folks to the northwest could see an inch or less of snow by morning. Overnight lows will be mild with readings in the lower-30's.

  • Umbrella needed again

    The cold March rain continues through this Sunday in southeast Wisconsin, we could get a few breaks midday with the better chance of rain coming yet again this evening. Most locations could pick up an additional 0.75" today and tonight so try to keep those storm drains clear to keep up with the rain and melting snow.

  • Rain, then Snow Possible

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will have rain around the area. It becomes steadier as the night wears on. Current indications have rain totals over a half inch. Major flooding doesn't look to be an issue, but the snowpack will take a hit. It is March. Lows will be above freezing in the mid-30's.

  • Wet Weekend

    Warmer air is moving through southeastern Wisconsin, bringing a brief period of light freezing drizzle/rain and even some sleet mainly before 10am. This could give surfaces a light glazing of ice before temperatures warm up to near 40 degrees today, changing that chance to all rain throughout the afternoon. Scattered showers are expected through Milwaukee and Waukesha throughout the day but accumulations should stay near a tenth of an inch during the day.

  • Sunny Friday...Rainy Weekend

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for a sunny and mild Friday with highs in the upper 30s and a SE wind at 5-15 mph.

  • Last dry day before a wet weekend

    If you liked Thursday, you are in for another great day in southeastern Wisconsin with mostly sunny skies and seasonable temperatures. The clouds start to increase from the southwest tonight, helping blanket our temperatures overnight in the mid-20s.
