Today's Outlook

Dreary Monday..Cold Night...Cool Week

Today feels and looks like a Monday in fall with clouds, scattered rain showers, and highs only in the upper 50s.  The rain will come to an end after 4pm, the clouds will gradually clear out over night, and it will get cold.  Lows tonight will drop into the mid 40s along the lakefront, and into the upper 30s west of Waukeska.

 
High pressure settles into the area for the next few days with lots of sunshine, light wind, and cool temperatures.  Highs on Tuesday will be around 63, and Wednesday will be in the mid 60s after morning lows were in the mid 40s.  Thursday is another comfortable day with highs in the mid to upper 60s, and Friday will hit 70, but the chance for scattered showers returns.
 
Saturday is partly cloudy and even warmer with highs in the mid 70s and scattered showers.  Sunday is the nicer of the 2 days with highs in the low to mid 70s, and lots of sunshine.

We are halfway through the month of September and so far this month has been a bit different from the previous ten months in Milwaukee. The first ten days of this month were in the eighties and seventies and the average monthly temperature through the 10th was three degrees above normal. However, the past five days have been in the fifties and low sixties which has taken that same figure down to two degrees below normal. The weather will slowly warm this week but it will take until the weekend to get back to the normal daily high of seventy-one degrees. The next chance for precipitation in Milwaukee arrives on Friday.

Since we have hit the mid-point of this month, there are a couple of benchmarks to look forward to in our transition to winter. The first autumn weather parameter and the question I get a lot from folks are about the earliest date for snowfall in the Milwaukee area. The date is not far from today as the first trace of snow hit on September 20th back in1954. The first measurable snowfall doesn’t arrive until next month when a tenth of an inch fell on October 6th in 1889.

The other question is about the earliest freeze which also occurred on the 20th but in 1956.
