Beautiful July 4th weather on the way

Beautiful July 4th weather on the way

By Jesse Ritka. CREATED Jul 3, 2011

MILWAUKEE - Southeast Wisconsin will see a much better start to Sunday with lower temperatures and much lower humidity, expect a high of 81 degrees in Milwaukee with dew points in the 50s. 

Yesterday dew points were in the 70s to start, so the cold front that swung through will be responsible for a more comfortable feel in the air today.  We will still see plenty of sunshine, though a few thin clouds may filter it for parts of the day.

Another mild night is in store with light winds, partly cloudy skies and temperatures dropping close to 60 degrees.

The fantastic forecast continues for the Fourth of July, with mostly sunny skies, temperatures in the low 80s again with little humidity.  It will stay dry and mild throughout the overnight as well so the weather will cooperate no matter which day you head to see a parade or fireworks.

Tuesday will start out dry and we’ll watch the cloud cover increase throughout the day as our next weathermaker brings a chance for showers and thunderstorms mainly during the evening and overnight hours. 

A chance for rain and thunderstorms remains on Wednesday but the system should push out of here by the afternoon and then we’ll see dry conditions heading into the weekend with temperatures in the 70s.
