  • Chilly With Rain Rolling In

    Another lobe of low pressure will approach Wisconsin today and drag more rounds of rain and some rumbles of thunder through our area as an associated frontal boundary becomes stationary. With winds shifting to more a Northerly direction, temperatures which had reached near 70 degrees yesterday will only reach near 50 degrees today. The wet, chillier weather will persist through Friday before high pressure shoves in for the weekend when we'll see a return to sunshine. Have a great Thursday!

  • We go from seventy degrees to cool and wet for tomorrow and Friday...

    The air overnight will be mild with mostly cloudy skies and low temperatures in the low to mid-forties. Low pressure tracking just to the North will drag up more moisture and trigger showers with a few thunderstorms around Southeast Wisconsin on Thursday, mainly in the afternoon. That unsettled pattern will stick around through Thursday night and Friday with several rounds of showers likely. Cooler air wraps in behind the system that will lead to fall-like conditions with highs in the 40's and wind chills in the upper-30's for the end of the work week. The weekend is looking cool also with high temperatures in the lower-fifties.

  • Warm Wind...Few Showers

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for a warm day with highs in the upper 60s thanks to a warm front and gusty southerly winds up to 30 mph. There will be a few clouds and scattered t'showers this afternoon and evening as a cold front gets closer. Tonight will be mostly cloudy with lows in the lower 40s with a light north wind. The wind shifts to the NE for Thursday which keeps the temperatures in the 40s along the lake and low 50s inland. It will be cloudy and rain is likely throughout the day...it will look at feel like a fall day.

  • Warmer, Windier, & Wetter

    A rather progressive flow in the upper levels of the atmosphere will bring the next storm system into our region today. Low pressure tracking just to the North will drag up more moisture and trigger showers with a few thunderstorms around Southeast Wisconsin, mainly in the afternoon. That unsettled pattern will stick around through Friday with several rounds of showers and thunderstorms likely. After an initial surge of warm air sends readings way up into the 60s today, cooler air wrapping in behind the system will lead to chillier readings for the end of the work week. Have a great Wednesday!

  • Rainy Rest of Week

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for increasing clouds tonight with lows near 40 and SE winds increasing to 10-15 mph. A warm front passes through the area by morning and winds will shift to the SSW and gust up to 35 mph warming high temperatures into the mid 60s. However it will be cloudy with scattered showers before noon and T'showers likely in the afternoon and evening. The rain tapers off late Wednesday night and cooler air returns for Thursday with highs near 50. Another storm system moves in for Thursday afternoon and into Friday with heavy rain at times. Southern Wisconsin will see more than an inch of rain from Wednesday through Friday. Lows Thursday night will be in the mid to upper 30s and a few flurries are possible Friday morning before becoming all rain the rest of the day. The sunshine returns for the weekend with highs in the lower 50s. TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and seasonable. Low: 38. Wind: SSE 5-15 mph. WEDNESDAY:Mostly cloudy, warmer and windy with Scattered T'showers before noon and likely in the afternoon. High: 67. Wind: SW 15-25 mph, Gusting to 35mph. WED NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with showers ending late. Low: 44. Wind: NNE 5-15 mph. THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy, cooler and breezy with T'showers likely, High: 48 Lakefront...55 Waukesha. Wind: NE 10-15 mph.

  • More sun, less wind

    We get a lot more sun and a lot less wind for this Tuesday in southeast Wisconsin but temperatures are cooler, especially by the lakefront: 46° in Milwaukee and 52° in Waukesha and inland. Tonight a few clouds will roll in late but temperatures will be normal for this time in April: 38°.

  • Sunshine and Cooler

    Have a great Tuesday!

  • Blustery with sprinkles and falling temps

    A blustery day is already in motion, a wind advisory covers all of southeaster Wisconsin as winds stay sustained at 20-30mph with gusts over 45mph at times. We are still watching a few sprinkles to move out by 5pm behind the cold front that brought roughly an inch of rain over the weekend. Temperatures have been falling throughout the day behind the front and we'll be in the 40s by 5pm.

  • Very Windy and a Few Showers

  • Severe Weather Threat Slowly Diminishing

    There is a batch of storms moving through parts of the area right now. These have weakened significantly since moving into southeast Wisconsin. The strongest storm was still the one right after 3PM this afternoon for a lot of us. Luckily, much of this day's energy was limited by the cloud cover that we saw for much of the day. If we would've added more sun, much of this shower and storm activity would be much stronger.

  • Showers and Storms Taper off Late

    We saw our initial batch of storms moving through during the later afternoon hours. Luckily the clouds held for most of the day stopping the lower levels of the atmosphere from getting too warm. That was key in limiting supercellular development. The batch of storms that has been working its way through parts of the area has been strong, but this is not a major severe weather outbreak. These storms have actually helped again along with the clouds in mixing up the atmosphere for the time being, limiting more major development.

  • First Batch of Storms Moving Through

    This is our initial batch of storms moving through. Luckily the clouds held for most of the day stopping the lower levels of the atmosphere from getting too warm. That was key in limiting supercellular development. The batch of storms that has been working its way through parts of the area has been strong, but this is not a major severe weather outbreak. These storms have actually helped again along with the clouds in mixing up the atmosphere for the time being, limiting more major development.

  • Slight risk for severe weather today

    Most locations in southeast Wisconsin have already seen 0.25" - 0.75" of rain from the first round of showers & T'storms that passed through early this morning. There will be a break in the action during the middle of the day when it will be warm, muggy and windy with highs in the 70s again. That dry period may even catch a few peaks of sun but that will only help prime the atmosphere for strong to even severe storms to fire up this afternoon and evening.

  • Severe Weather Potential for Sunday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast the rest of your night starts to get a little noisier as the night wears on. Storms that developed out over the Central Plains will gradually work their way through our area. A few of these could bring a little hail or gusty wind, but this isn't the main batch of storms to watch. Overnight lows will be in the mid-50's.

  • Drier Saturday, stormy Sunday

    Get ready for a warmer weekend with highs in the 70s in southeast Wisconsin. Today the clouds will be decreasing and we'll see partly to mostly sunny skies by the end of the day, keeping us dry during the daytime hours. Tonight is a different story as a warm front noses into the area, bringing a good chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop. Some locations along the Illinois border could see periods of heavy rain but most locations will see a quarter of an inch to a half an inch of rain. Lows stay mild, in the mid-50s.

  • A warmer but wet weekend ahead

    The southeast Wisconsin forecast calls for more cloud cover this evening with a few light rain showers/sprinkles.

  • Clouds and Wet Weather Approaching

    Strong Southerly winds will send our temperatures back into the upper 50s today. They'll gust to 25 miles per hour at times and help boost the amount of moisture in the atmosphere. As the leading edge of even warmer air heads our way, we'll see showers and thunderstorms overspread the area late. This will begin a stretch of several days with a chance of rain, including both Saturday and Sunday. Though, temperatures over the weekend will jump way up to near 70 degrees.

  • Last dry night

    It will be the last dry night for several days in southeast Wisconsin with clear skies. Temperatures will be seasonable at the lake, 37° in Milwaukee, but cooler inland with a chance for some patchy frost as temperatures dip to 33° in Waukesha.

  • Sunny Today, Showers Tomorrow

  • Thursday will be sunny and warmer before rain moves in on Friday...

    Clear skies and light winds tonight will allow temperatures to drop below freezing in many spots in southeastern Wisconsin so it will be a frosty night, Aand you may want to cover sensitive plants. There will be more sunshine on Thursday with winds turning more southeasterly so high temperatures will reach into the mid or upper-fifties. MIld air and clouds roll in Thursday night and then showers ands thunderstorms follow on Friday afternoon and may continue into Saturday.
