Today's Outlook

Scattered showers, thunderstorms Tuesday night

After a chilly Monday with highs in the 60s, Tuesday warms back into the mid to upper 70s, and it remains comfortable with low humidity levels. Despite a sunny start, clouds will develop this afternoon with scattered showers and downpours after 3pm until 9pm. Tonight will be partly cloudy and cool once again with lows in the 50s. Wednesday is a little cooler along the lakefront with the return of a NE breeze. Highs will be near 70 near the water, and mid 70s inland. Clouds and showers develop once again in the afternoon. Thursday and Friday are back in the upper 70s with scattered afternoon showers developing. Friday is the day with the best chance for rain and downpours. This unsettled weather pattern continues into Saturday with a few showers and highs still in the 70s. Sunday is finally dry with highs near 80.

Wednesday will be like Tuesday with morning sunshine, partly cloudy skies by afternoon, and widely scattered showers or thunderstorms in Milwaukee after four o’clock in the afternoon. The showers will linger into the evening before dissipating before midnight. While there is a chance for some rain, the dew points near the ground where we are will still be comfortable, mainly in the fifties. Remember, you need the moisture up where the clouds are located to make rain!

Wednesday is the anniversary of one of the highest dew points on record for Milwaukee when it soared to 82 degrees back in 1999. A dew point of eighty-two degrees is oppressive, and the air is extremely moist. Most folks get a bit uncomfortable when the dew point is in the sixties, and all folks are feeling uncomfortable when the dew points hit the seventies. The dew point of 82 was also recorded on July 4th in 1977.

There are some areas of the planet that see many days with dew points in the eighties, if that is something you really want to experience. The hottest and most humid regions of the world are the coastal areas of The Persian Gulf, Red Sea, and Gulf of Aden. Coastal Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia see dew points in the eighties and even nineties.
