After a very chilly start with temperatures in the 20s and 30s for Northeast Wisconsin, we have been warming up nicely this afternoon thanks to an increase in a southwest wind flow. Our average high for this time of the year is around 56 and we are seeing highs around and even a few degrees above it.
The steady breeze out of the southwest will continue into the night around 10 to 15 mph. Temperatures will remain mild in the mid-40s. However, as we turn the page to tomorrow, we are going to have clouds rapidly increase after 3-4 am and then rain will shortly follow suite. A low pressure is tracking across Southern Canada with a cold front extending all the way down into the Great Lakes.
Ahead of the cold front, temperatures will once again climb into the mid and upper 50s. If there are some breaks in the clouds during the afternoon, I would not be surprised if we get near 60 degrees. Winds will be steady out of the southwest to start but later in the evening change out of the northwest around 10 to 20 mph. We will see gusts near 30 mph.
Rain showers will come to an end Friday evening. The weekend will be chilly with highs in the lower to mid-40s. On Saturday, a secondary cold front will provide a few additional scattered showers across the area. Some of these rain showers could turn into a rain snow mix, especially farther north you live.
A dry stretch of weather returns Sunday through next week Thursday.
