MILWAUKEE - A flood watch is in effect for all of Southeastern Wisconsin through Tuesday night.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Dodge, Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday.


The record of 56 from 1914 has already been broken in Milwaukee and highs will be around 60 until we start to cool later this afternoon as the front and rain showers move into the region. 

The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for crazy weather the next 3 days so be prepared for everything. 

The risk for severe weather is possible as far north as Chicago today and heavy rain of 1-2", in addition to the almost 1" last night, will create flooding across SE Wisconsin this evening and overnight. 

Temperatures will be in the 40s by 6pm with heavy rain and temperatures will continue to drop overnight.  After 4am, snow will begin to mix in with the rain.

Snow is likely all day Wednesday with 1-3" of snow from Milwaukee to Waukesha and areas south, and 3-6" of snow west and north. 

In addition, temperatures will be dropping into the 20s with a gusty wind up to 35 mph keeping the wind chills near 0 all day.

Wednesday night will be cold with lows in the single digits and wind chills of -10 to -15. 

Thursday will have flurries and wind chills below zero all day with highs near 10. 

Thursday night will be bitterly cold with lows below zero and wind chills of -20 to -25 Friday morning. 

Friday is sunny, and very cold with highs only in the single digits.

Get ready fro some major weather changes!
