  • More cold on Tuesday, but warm air by Thursday...

    Mostly clear skies will dominate overnight and temperatures will drop to between eighteen and twenty-two degrees across southeast Wisconsin. High pressure builds in day by day presenting even more sunshine and quiet conditions. While there is plenty of sunsinhe both Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures will be in the upper-thirties to mid-forties. A more Southerly flow by Thursday will boost temperatures back into the fifties and then seasonal temperatures reign through the weekend. There is no rain expected until next weekend.

  • Nasty Cold Comes Back...For Now

    We're about to experience an extremely peaceful work week with a wide range in temperatures from Monday to Friday. Our region remains sandwiched between an upper level trough to our East and a ridge to our West. This is allowing much, much colder air to stream our way for the start of the week. Temperatures today, opening day at Miller Park, will only reach the mid 30s, while winds will howl out of the Northwest with gusts to 25 miles per hour. High pressure builds in day by day presenting even more sunshine and quiet conditions. A more Southerly flow by mid to late week will boost temperatures back into the 40s and even 50s with no rain expected until next weekend. Have a great Opening Day and terrific work week!

  • Cold and Blustery for Monday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night has that secondary front rolling through, and the temperatures will be falling. As the front moves through, you could see a stray rain or snow shower, but otherwise it will just be blustery and colder with overnight lows in the low-20's.

  • Slightly cooler with a hoppin' breeze

    This last day of March will start out with some areas of fog but then southeast Wisconsin will see mostly to partly cloudy skies. Another cold front swings through this afternoon, increasing the winds and bringing a very slight chance for sprinkles. Temperatures will be near normal for this Easter Sunday with highs climbing into the upper 40s and 50 degrees in Milwaukee. Behind this second cold front temperatures will drop into the 20s and it will feel colder with a strong NW wind so bundle the kids up for the bus stop.

  • Scattered Showers Tonight, then Colder Monday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night has scattered showers moving on through. These actually will be tapering off as the later night hours wear on. Overnight lows will be in the mid- to upper-30's and we'll keep all this as rain.

  • Some sun then showers

    A cold front is approaching from the west but we will still sneak a pretty decent day out ahead of it in southeastern Wisconsin. Some morning sunshine and a nice southerly wind will help warm Milwaukee up into the low 50s today. This afternoon the clouds will increase and you will want to have the umbrella ready for the evening hours as scattered rain showers can be expected mainly after 6pm. Off and on rain is expected tonight, ending by 4am, with most locations catching a tenth to a quarter of an inch in the bucket.

  • A warmer Easter weekend for Milwaukee...

    Tonight looks quiet with temperatures around average under mostly clear skies. Expect low temperatures in the low-30's across much of southeast Wisconsin. Saturday starts off sunny with southerly winds and that should take temperatures into the low or mid-fifties in the Milwaukee area. Rain from a low pressure system out west will be in Milwaukee after 4 pm in the afternoon, and should end before 4 am on saturday night. Easter Sunday looks partly cloudy and seasonably cool with high temperatures in the upper-forties. Opening Day is looking windy and much colder with high temperatures in the middle thirties.

  • Some Weekend Rain, but Not a Wash

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Friday has another round of plenty of sun with fairly nice temperatures. Highs will top out in the upper-40's, but if you live by Lake Michigan, it will probably cool down a little as the day wears on.

  • Fabulous Friday!

    Second verse, same as the first. Look for an abundance of sunshine again as surface high pressure continues to dominate our weather. The influence of that ridge will lead to very light winds and dry air again with temperatures climbing even higher than yesterday. The peaceful pattern slowly breaks during the holiday weekend with the approach of a storm system from the Southwest. Look for some sunshine on winds shifting to the South by Saturday morning. Those breezes will boost temperatures into the 50s, but as the disturbance approaches, clouds will rapidly increase, as will the moisture. Rain showers should develop late in the day and continue through Saturday night. Easter Sunday may start out damp, but it certainly will not be a wash out as some clearing takes place throughout the day. Have a terrific weekend!

  • One more sunny and seasonal day before rain rolls into Milwaukee...

    Tonight will be clear to partly cloudy and quiet. Overnight low temperatures will be around thirty degrees for our lakefront communities and mid-20's for Waukesha's temperatures and inland areas. Friday will be very similar to Thursday with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures in the middle forties. Lake effect wuinds will cool it down a little near the lake in the afternoon. Saturday will have southerly winds and temperatures near fifty degrees, but clouds roll in during the afternoon and rain showers will follow by the evening hours. Most of the rain will be over by the early morning hours on Sunday.

  • A Few Dry Days, then Some Rain

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Thursday could have just a few clouds, otherwise expect nice temperatures in the mid-40's.

  • Beautiful Blue & Warmer Too!

    With high pressure rolling through the region we've been able to shoo away many of yesterday's pesky clouds in favor of brighter conditions. Temperatures will continue moving the "right" direction, though still a bit below average for this time of year. Quiet contidions will persist through Friday with readings rising to the mid 40s. On Saturday, we'll see some the warmest temperatures in quite some time as mercury rises to about 50 degrees. Clouds build back in, too, by the beginning of the weekend. With the approach of a cold front, look for showers to develop late in the day and lasting through much of the night. Easter Sunday looks to start grey and wet, but some clearing will be possible as the day progresses. Opening day at Miller Park looks to be dry but much chillier again with readings in the 30s. Enjoy the sunshine and have a great Thursday!

  • The slow warm-up marches on Thursday and Friday...

    Clear skies overnight will allow temperatures to drop into the middle twenties in most locations. High pressure will become the dominant factor in our weather over the next couple of days. As it meanders overhead, we'll see plenty of sunshine but a continuation of temperatures in the forties. Our winds will become more southerly by Saturday, finally getting us out of that pesky Northwest flow. This will allow our temperatures to begin a noticeable climb. By Saturday, we could top out above normal with high temperatures in the upper-forties. Unfortunately, that warmer air will lead to more moisture and the potential for some rain by Saturday afternoon.

  • Stubborn Clouds, But Sun Soon

    With a weak trough close to us, we'll remain stuck in some stubborn clouds early, but sun should break through later as ridging builds. High pressure will become the dominant factor in our weather over the next couple of days. As it meanders overhead, we'll see plenty of sunshine but a continuation of the chilly readings. This will be a transitional period, though. Our winds will become more Southerly, finally getting us out of that pesky Northwest flow. This will allow our temperatures to begin a noticeable climb. We'll pick up a few degrees each day through the weekend. By Saturday, we could top out near 50 degrees. Unfortunately, that warmer air will lead to more moisture and the potential for some rain by then, too. Have a great Wednesday!

  • After a long string of thirties, forties make a comeback in Milwaukee...

    We still could see a flurry or two tonight, but most of the night will be quiet with some breaks in the overcast. Overnight low temperatures will be in the upper-20's for our lakefront communities and middle-20's for Waukesha's temperatures and inland areas. Wednesday will see temperatures just over forty degrees again with some sunshine off and on throughout the day. The forty degree temperatures will continue through the rest of nthe week and we may see a high temperature of fifty degrees by Saturday. Rain is possible during the morning ours on Easter Sunday.

  • Getting Better

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for some sunshine today, but plenty of clouds with a few flurries and highs in the upper 30s. The weather continues to improve the rest of the week thanks to high pressure bringing lots of sun, lighter wind and highs in the 40s. Milwaukee gets back to normal by Friday with highs in the mid 40s and Saturday will be close to 50 with increasing clouds.

  • A Few Flurries, and a Slow Warm-Up

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Tuesday has a few flurries or even a stray snow shower. Now those will be few and far between and won't be a big deal. Most of your day will be okay with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper-30's.

  • More cold air until Thursday in Milwaukee...

    The jet stream is still way to the south of Wisconsin and that continues to allow cold air to flow in from southern Canada. Temperatures will stay in the mid to upper-thirties through Wednesday, but we should see a litle sunshine return late Tuesday and most of Wednesday. Readings through the first half of the week will remain roughly ten degrees below where they should be with high temperatures topping out in the middle 30's. A gradual but noticeable warm up will begin by the Thursday and Friday. The work week will remain rather quiet with no big storms on the horizon and plenty of sunshine by Wednesday with high pressure dominating our weather. The next chance for precipitation moves in on Easter Sunday with the chance for rainshowers.

  • Grey Start But Week Long Climb

    As that massive storm system continues passing to our South, we could see some Lake effect flurries or snow showers, mainly midday. Cold air continues filtering through the region with no dramatic shift from the pattern which seems to have perpetually delayed Spring weather around here. Readings through the first half of the week will remain roughly 10 degrees below where they should be with highs topping out in the middle 30's. A gradual but noticeable warm up will begin by the Thursday and Friday. The work week also looks to remain rather quiet with no big storms on the horizon and plenty of sunshine by midweek with high pressure dominating our weather. Have a great Monday and a terrific work week!

  • Breezy with a Few Flurries or Snow Showers

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night has a few scattered snow showers and flurries. Any accumulation under these snow bands should be an inch or less. Overnight lows in the upper-20's for our lakefront communities and mid-20's for Waukesha's temperatures and inland areas.
