MILWAUKEE -  The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Saturday night has the next area of low pressure slowly on the way. The first thing you'll notice is that wind. Clouds will be on the increase, but most of the night will be quiet. There's a slight chance of a little rain very late. Overnight lows will be in the upper-30's.

Sunday will be windy and cool with a wind coming right off of Lake Michigan. That's going to affect all of us. Highs will only top out in the mid-40's under mostly cloudy skies. That low pressure will get even closer with a chance of scattered showers. It will not rain all day, but the threat will be there.
Here we go with the main batch of rain on Sunday night. It will still be windy with overnight lows in the upper-30's. Looks like we'll end up with over a half inch of rain just on Sunday night.
It will still be raining on Monday. This will be at least another half inch of rain. Basically, you should be getting the gutters ready again and checking the sump pumps. Monday will be windy with highs only in the mid-40's.
This cut off low pressure hangs around for Tuesday as well. The wind won't quite be as strong. Highs will top out in the upper-40's for our lakefront communities and Milwaukee's temperature and mid-50's for Waukesha and inland areas.
The chance of rain continues through Wednesday as well with highs in the low-50's
Remember, a cut off low means the conditions really don't change. We could still see a few hit and miss showers on Thursday as well.
The rain won't be continuous later in the week, but the chances will remain. We might be able to quiet down part of the upcoming weekend.
