Today's Outlook

Clear and cool overnight, but another storm heads our way

Clear skies and cool, dry air overnight as high pressure slides overhead. Low temperatures will drop between 31 and 33 degrees across southeast Wisconsin.

The temperature slide will continue tomorrow with the mercury hard pressed to surpass 50 degrees.  Wednesday promises to be dry, but with the ridge's departure moisture will begin growing again.  That means more clouds later in the day with showers and thunderstorms overspreading the area later Wednesday night and continuing on Thursday.  It may be a bit early to focus on this, but longer term models are pointing to chilly air as we finish April and welcome May. For example, the weekend looks cloudy, breezy and cool both days with high temperatures only in the forties. There is a chance for showers returning on Sunday.

This is Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week for Wisconsin, a time for all folks to go over their safety plans and remember what you should do in case of severe weather from thunderstorms. Wisconsin documents about 23 tornadoes annually across the state, and most of those occur between the hours of three o’clock and nine o’clock in the late afternoon and evening. The absolute busiest hour for tornadoes is between six and seven o’clock in the early evening. You may remember that the March 8th, 2000 tornado that hit the airport in Milwaukee occurred shortly after six o’clock in the evening.

The record for tornado occurrences in Wisconsin was 62 twisters which occurred in 2005. Last year there were only sixteen tornadoes reported in Wisconsin due to the cooler weather pattern generated by a general northwest jet stream. It looks like the trend continues as so far this year as there have been only 109 tornadoes, well below the average of 420 twisters through this date.
