Today's Outlook

Beautiful but still cool

High pressure has pushed the clouds out of southeastern Wisconsin and the sunshine has returned.  Despite the blue skies our temperatures have only slightly improved from Monday's 50s due to a northwesterly wind keeping highs in the low 60s.  Mostly clear skies are expected overnight, allowing cold temperatures to stick around with low 40s inland and mid-40s along Lake Michigan.

 
More of the same is expected for Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and seasonably cool temps in the mid-60s.  Thursday will be just a touch cooler as a breeze off the lake keeps highs in the lower 60s but feeling fine under mostly sunny skies.
 
Warmer air moves in on Friday with 70s returning to the forecast but a few showers and storms will develop by the end of the day.  Unsettled weather sticks around for Saturday with partly to mostly cloudy skies, scattered showers and 70s.  Sunday will be the pick day out of the weekend as drier weather is anticipated with highs still staying near 70 degrees.

Southeast Wisconsin will again see with plenty of sunshine, dry and comfortable air, light winds and temperatures in the middle-sixties for Wednesday. This pattern will continue Thursday also although winds will turn northeasterly and drop temperatures into the lower-sixties. The next opportunity for showers or thunderstorms rolls in on Friday afternoon and will continue on Saturday. Temperatures will soar into the lower seventies Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Milwaukee.

Did you notice how daylight has decreased lately? Today’s sunrise in Milwaukee is 6:33 in the morning and sunset falls at 6:58 in the evening. We have dropped to about twelve hours and twenty-five minutes of daylight hours, which means it takes air moving in from warm places to warm this area at this time of the year. Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 2nd this year and the winter solstice occurs on December 21st, also a Sunday. The total time of daylight on the solstice is right at nine hours.

Hours of daylight are important for many reasons, including the physical and psychological effects it has on some folks who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience but then experience depressed symptoms in the winter season. People with seasonal affective disorder have symptoms of sleeping too much, have little energy, and feel depressed more often.
