Today's Outlook

Cooler today but a warmer weekend

Cooler air slides in behind Thursday's cold front so temperatures will only top out in the low 50s today and highs will be even cooler right along Lake Michigan due to a more calm NNE wind.  The seasonably cool air sticks around tonight under partly cloudy skies with lows dropping close to the freezing mark.

 
Warmer weather surges in for the weekend, especially for folks away from Lake Michigan where highs will get close to 60 degrees.  The mercury will barely get to the 50 degree mark along the shoreline but at least it will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy and dry even if it is a bit breezy.  Easter Sunday will be even warmer as a warm front pushes well to our north, bumping highs up to 62 degrees in Milwaukee.  The cloud cover will be increasing throughout the day and there is a slight chance for a light rain shower mainly north of I-94 in the late afternoon and evening hours.
 
The better chance for wet weather comes on Monday as this area of low pressure is a slow mover.  Southeastern Wisconsin will still be located south of the warm front so highs will get close to 60 degrees even with the April showers.  Rain totals will mainly be below a quarter of an inch by the time we get to Tuesday.
 
Dry and seasonable conditions are expected for Tuesday and Wednesday before our next weather-maker moves in on Thursday to bring additional April showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder back into the forecast.  Next weekend looks cooler than average with highs back down in the 40s with rain chances on Saturday.
 
Warmer temperatures roll in for the Easter holiday weekend as the winds turn more southerly starting Saturday. In Milwaukee the winds start out southeast Saturday so temperatures will only warm to about fifty degrees at the lakeshore but into the upper-fifties west of the lake. Every location gets into the sixties on Sunday, with a few spotty showers possible late in the day.
 
The North Woods just endured another snowstorm with more than sixteen inches falling in some locations on Wednesday and Thursday. Rhinelander picked up eleven inches of new snow bringing their current snow depth back up to fifteen inches. It also ensures a few more days with snow on the ground, a consecutive day streak that began on November 20th of last year. Rhinelander has recorded an inch or more of snow on the ground for the past 150 days in a row, and their seasonal snow total sits at 107.8 inches. Marquette in Michigan recorded sixty more inches of total snow for the season than Rhinelander, but their snow cover streak is one day shorter at 149 days!
 
In comparison Milwaukee recorded ninety-two consecutive days of snow on the ground, the second longest streak on record for this location. Wausau experienced 131 days of continual snow cover, while Green Bay saw 108 consecutive days.
