  • 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 today 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.

MILWAUKEE - 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.

Saturday will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 30s and Sunday will be cloudy with flurries and scattered light snow showers, especially south of Milwaukee, with less than 1" of accumulation. Highs will be in the mid 30s and winds will be out of the NE at 15-25 mph.

Monday will continue to be breezy and cold with flurries and highs in the mid 30s. We are in a rut with the weather and it would be great if that rut was sunny and 70, but its sunny and 30s through next week. There is a chance for a rain/snow mix on Thursday, otherwise it will be dry and chilly.
