***Watch WISN 12 News this weekend for Milwaukee’s most accurate forecast!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Just a reminder for the most updated forecast make sure to watch our newscasts all weekend long. After a brief drop in temperatures the last few days, the weekend will get off to a very mild start.
Highs across the Midwest on Friday soared into the 60s and 70s, and with a southwest wind on Saturday, the warm air will pour into Southeast Wisconsin. High will warm into the mid-60s in many backyards.
Here is the temperature forecast map for 1 p.m. Saturday. This is the NAM computer model if you are keeping score at home.
By Saturday evening, a cold front will move through the region. As the front runs into the warm and slightly more moist air, the result may be a few showers. These will be isolated to widely scattered and not all areas will see rain. But there will be a few showers from Saturday evening into Saturday night. Below is the rainfall forecast from the 18Z NAM. This is the most aggressive computer model when it comes to rain. This puts down close to a half inch of rain near the Illinois border. I think this is a little overdone. But if the front would slow down a steadier rain shower is possible.
If you have outdoor plans on Saturday make sure to check in with WISN.com and our interactive radar throughout the day. The radar can be moved around to any city or location. So feel free to take it for a test drive this weekend and watch the potential showers move in. Just click on the link below to give it a try.
Behind the cold front Sunday will be slightly cooler, but if the sun is out, temps close to 60 are possible. I think our next run into the 70s could arrive next Thursday.
Make sure to check back for an updated blog on Saturday afternoon. Until then, check Facebook: WeatherWatch 12 for more updates.
