  • Sun feels great!

    Highs were only in the mid 30s on Thursday, but the sun and light wind made it feel very nice and we melted a lot of snow. The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for lows near 20 along the lake tonight and in the teens inland with some patchy fog developing late. The fog will quickly burn off and leave plenty of sun for Friday, along with a light SE wind and highs near 40.

  • Two Quiet Days, Rain this Weekend

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Thursday will be pretty nice compared to what we've been seeing. We're still going to be cooler than average, but at least it won't be snowing. Gradually, we'll see more sunshine as the day goes on with highs in the mid-30's.

  • Cool & breezy

    Cloudy, cool and breezy for the rest of the afternoon, quite the difference from this date last year when the high reached 63 degrees in Milwaukee. High pressure moves in from the west causing the winds will to calm and the skies to clear from west to east overnight. This will drastically drop overnight lows in locations that see the most clearing, teens are expected inland with lows closer to 20 degrees along Lake Michigan.

  • Breezy and cool for March

    Tuesday's winter storm brought a swath of snow with a sharp cut-off through southeastern Wisconsin: from 7.7" in Lake Geneva to 2.0" in Fond du Lac as the worst of the storm passed just to our south. Milwaukee saw 4.3" while people in Madison and northern Illinois saw 9-11" but behind this snowy system we're just looking at a few flurries this morning. We may even see some breaks in the clouds the further west you go as high pressure slides in. Highs stay cool for March, in the low 30s but it will feel colder with a breezy north wind.

  • The snow is over for now, and warmer air looms ahead...

    A few flurries or snow showers may stick around tonight under mostly cloudy skies and a brisk northerly wind. Low temperatures remain seasonably cool in the low to middle twenties across southeast Wisconsin. Wednesday will have partly to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the low to mid-thirties, with the chance for a couple of flurries developing. Warmer air slowly returns Thursday and Friday with some sunshine and high temperatures in the mid to upper-thirties. Maximums reach forty degrees this weekend but another storm with rain or snow hits on Sunday.

  • Here we snow again but totals won't be as high

    Good news for people anxious for spring, this storm track is trending a bit more to the south and with dry air in place in southeastern Wisconsin, snow totals will not be as high. Most snow should move in from the south and west after 9am becoming more widespread by the early afternoon hours when intensity will be the highest, especially the further south and west you go. Jefferson, Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties will pick up the most snow with 4-7" possible by storm's end, which is why a Winter Storm Warning was issued. Milwaukee and Waukesha should see closer to 2-5" of snow but with strong ENE winds at 10-20mph, blowing snow may be a problem so a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for those counties and Dodge county as well. Snow tapers off late tonight but a few light lake snow showers are still possible heading into Wednesday.

  • More snow on the way for southeast Wisconsin...

    Very light snow or a few flurries are possible overnight before the snow really flies later on Tuesday morning.Overnight low temperatures will stay in the upper-twenties with clouds and winds off the lake. Most of the accumulating snow won't start moving into southeastern Wisconsin until after 8am and it will become more widespread throughout the late morning hours on Tuesday. The worst period of snow looks to be midday with 1-2" of snow expected across much of the area. Higher amounts are possible in the southwest with lighter amounts expected in the northeast as this storm is taking a more southern route. Snow tapers off late Tuesday night with an additional inch possible, keeping storm totals mainly between 4-7" south of Milwaukee and about 2-4" in Milwaukee and Waukesha.

  • Winter Storm Warning for Tuesday

    A flurry is still possible this afternoon but most of southeastern Wisconsin will see mostly cloudy skies with cool temperatures. The wind starts to increase from the east overnight as a storm system approaches from the southwest.

  • Snow moves in late tonight

    Most of this Monday will be quiet with increasing clouds throughout the morning hours, highs will top out near 30 degrees in southeast Wisconsin. A few light snow showers are possible through the afternoon but little accumulation is expected.

  • More Snow Rolls in Tuesday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Sunday night will be quiet with increasing clouds. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid-teens for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee temperatures and low-teens for Waukesha's temperature and inland areas.

  • Quiet today then snow on the way

    We'll almost see a repeat forecast in southeastern Wisconsin on this Sunday with mostly sunny skies, light winds and high temperatures that are nearly ten degrees below normal. With the sunshine however, it will still feel nice and enjoy it while it lasts because there is yet another snow system on the way.

  • Sun Sunday, Chance of Snow Tuesday

    The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night will be quiet with cold temperatures for this time of year. Overnight lows will bottom out in the low-teens for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee temperatures and upper-single digits for Waukesha's temperature and inland areas.

  • Cold but quiet weekend

    The cloud cover will slowly decrease and most of southeastern Wisconsin will see partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies by the afternoon. It will be another cold day with a light northerly wind keeping temperatures only in the upper 20s.

  • Cold air sticks around all weekend...

    High pressure reigns for tonight and the weekend and that means cold air will stick around, also. Readings remain about flat for daytime highs right around thirty degrees and the low to mid teens during the overnight hours. That's well below the seasonal averages for this time of year which are in the upper-thirties for maximums and mid-twenties for minimums. The silver lining arrives in the form of more sunshine, especially inland on Saturday and across the area on Sunday.

  • Cool, but Quiet Weekend

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for more clouds, wind and flurries throughout the day with highs near 30 and wind chills in the teens. The flurries continue this evening before the clouds slowly clear out overnight with lows in the teens and wind chills in the single digits. High pressure moves in just in time for the weekend and that means SUNSHINE and lighter winds, but highs will struggle to reach 30. Morning lows will be in the teens and single digits, but that March sun will feel great this weekend!

  • Temperature Downturn & A Few Flakes

    With high pressure to our North and that massive stacked low off to our East we'll continue to experience a bit breezy conditions through the day. Those winds out of the Northeast will pick up some Lake Michigan moisture and drag clouds, along with scattered flurries, and snow showers inland. The brisk breeze will add an even bigger chill to the air as our temperatures will continue a downward trend with temperatures only reaching about 30 degrees. That trend continues into the weekend as readings remain about flat for daytime highs and the low to mid teens during the overnight hours. That's well below the seasonal averages for this time of year. The silver lining arrives in the form of more sunshine, especially inland on Saturday and across the area on Sunday. Have a great Friday and a terrific weekend!

  • Stuck with northeast winds and a few snow showers...

    Persistent strong North to Northeast winds will be a big factor adding a chill to the air over the next several days as temperatures begin to take a bit of a downturn heading to the mid 20's by the weekend. Those northeast winds off of Lake Michigan will also add scattered snow showers and flurries tonight and tomorrow, particularly in our Eastern counties. Low temperatures tonight will be in the middle-twenties, near thirty degrees on Friday, and colder for the weekend. Some sunshine returns Saturday and even more in the forecast for Sunday.

  • Windy...Flurries

    The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for much quieter conditions, but it remains cloudy and windy with scattered flurries. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s with wind chills near 20.

  • Windy With Snow Showers

    The significant snow accumulation from our last storm is finished, but on the backside of it we'll remain mired in a myriad of lingering moisture, snow showers, and cloudiness. Persistent strong North to Northeast winds will be a big factor adding a chill to the air over the next several days as temperatures begin to take a bit of a downturn heading to the mid 20's by the weekend. Those winds off of Lake Michigan will also add scattered snow showers and flurries tonight and tomorrow, particularly in our Eastern counties. Some sunshine returns Saturday and even more in for Sunday. Have a great Thursday!

  • Light snow off the lake may still be around on Thursday...

    Northeast winds generated by the upper-low from our big snow storm will keep a few snow showers or flurries around through Friday. Temperatures will stay around thirty degrees tonight and will continue around the freezing mark on Thursday. The temperatures stay in the lower-thirties on Friday but back off to the mid or upper-twenties this weekend. Some sunshine should return by the end of the week and into the weekend with quiet conditions settling into southeast Wisconsin.
