Today's Outlook

Rain coming, temps to drop again

The roller coaster temperature pattern continues for Milwaukee as temperatures have jumped from the thirties to start this week to around fifty degrees today. Cooler air rolls in for Friday and Saturday before another warm-up ensues for next week.

There will be plenty of clouds around for Thursday and the next few days, with a chance for isolated showers today and then scattered rain on Easter Sunday.

I am sure you have heard or used the proverbial “April showers bring May flowers, but do you know it has a meteorological reality?

In Milwaukee the drier time of the year ends in March and the wet season starts in April. From April through September monthly rainfall is three inches or greater, while normal monthly rainfall from October through March is under three inches each month.

The reason for the increase in rain showers activity in April lies in the increased heating of the ground at this latitude. The direct rays of the sun are further north and the heat input has greatly increased.

While the air aloft is still rather cold, heating of the air near the surface causes it to expand and become less dense than the air above.

This situation is called unstable air and the air then rises and cools, with clouds and rain showers generally following.
