  • The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin is for hazy sunshine, a light westerly breeze and highs in the mid 50s...about 10 degrees above normal. Lows tonight will drop into the upper 30s with the patchy fog redeveloping. If you are leaving early Wednesday morning, there will be patchy fog, but it won't be dense and will burn off quickly.

  • The rest of Wednesday is ideal for traveling with sun, a light southerly wind and highs near 60. The only area in the country with travel problems will be from Seattle to Portland, otherwise it is sunny and mild...great for traveling!

  • If you are staying here, Thanksgiving Day will be partly cloudy, windy and warm with highs near 60 and a gusty SW wind up to 20 mph. A cold front will arrive late in the day with more clouds and scattered showers after sunset. That front will bring us back to reality with highs struggling to hit 40 on Friday for the shoppers and very strong NW winds up to 30 mph. Wind chills will be in the 20s.

  • Saturday and Sunday are sunny and seasonal with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s and lows in the 20s. Sunday will be much colder when you return to Milwaukee, but at least you dont have to worry about snow or heavy rain.

  • Today: Mostly sunny, hazy and mild | High: 55 | Wind: NW/SW 5-10 mph

    Tonight: Mostly clear and mild with patchy fog developing | Low: 40 lakefront...36 Waukesha | Wind: Light

  • Wednesday: Sunny, hazy and very warm | High: 60 | Wind: SW 5-15 mph

    Wednesday night: Mostly clear and mild | Low: 44 | Wind: SW 10-15 mph
