Today's Outlook

Pop up showers, storms possible

The southeast Wisconsin, Waukesha and Milwaukee forecast for the rest of your Friday has a weak area of low pressure will be passing again. Once again, we should see a few showers or a T'storm pop up. Highs will top out in the low-80's, though it will cool down a bit at times Tonight, with this passing low, we could see some scattered showers in the evening, but once again, with the loss of daytime heating, we'll get rid of those. Overnight lows will bottom out around 60 for Milwaukee's temperature and our lakefront communities and upper-50's for Wauksha's temperature and inland areas. Saturday, there's still a slight chance of a pop-up shower, but most of the day looks fine at the moment. Highs will top out in the upper-70's for Milwaukee's temperature and our lakefront communities and low-80's for Wauksha's temperature and inland areas. Saturday night looks quiet. Overnight lows will bottom out around 60 for Milwaukee's temperature and our lakefront communities and upper-50's for Wauksha's temperature and inland areas. There's another chance of a afternoon shower on Sunday, but nothing would last all day. Highs will top out around 80 for Milwaukee's temperature and our lakefront communities and low-80's for Wauksha's temperature and inland areas. Chances of showers and T'storms will continue with temperatures near average going into next week. Any rain wouldn't be of the all-day variety.

August is in full swing and the first day of the month acted more like a summer day in Milwaukee than most days this season. Temperatures soared into the lower-eighties on Friday with scattered severe thunderstorms in the late afternoon and early evening. Temperatures this weekend should be right around eighty degrees on both days which is the normal high temperature for both days. There is a chance for late afternoon showers and thunderstorms both days also, but a much smaller chance than earlier this week.

August can be a very hot month with temperatures recorded in the one hundred degree category as late as the 24th when the record high temperature was 100 degrees back in 1948. The warmest temperature for the month was recorded on the 1st in 1988 with a maximum of 103 degrees. During that same very hot month in Milwaukee four days made it to one hundred degrees or warmer. The coldest temperature for August was a chilly forty-two degrees set on the 23rd in 1875 and the 30th in 1915.

August can be very wet also with just over nine inches of monthly rain falling in 1987. The previous year Milwaukee recorded 8.82 inches of monthly precipitation and in 2007 almost eight inches accumulated. The normal monthly precipitation is 3.97 inches.
