More Rain…Weekend Warm-up Ahead

***Watch WISN 12 News at 5, 6, & 10pm as we track rain on the Doppler 12 Radar Network!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog!  A comment that I hear a lot is, “Why can’t it rain during the week, instead of on the weekend?”.  With rain on Tuesday, and drizzle to start Wednesday, many are getting their wish. But you guessed it, now the pendulum has swung and many are saying, “When is the warmer weather coming back, I’m sick of the rain?”. 

The bad news for some, is that the clouds and rain will stick around into Thursday.  The good news, a nice weekend is headed our way!

Let’s first focus on the rain.  Outside of clouds and drizzle, no steady rain is expected in Milwaukee until later Wednesday, and then picking up intensity Wednesday night.  Rain and thunderstorms will be likely, but no severe weather is expected.  The rain should taper off Thursday afternoon, but clouds will hang behind the rain.

After picking up 1.00″ of rain in Milwaukee on Tuesday, another 1.00″ or more is possible across much of Southeast Wisconsin.  Below is the rainfall forecast from late Wednesday through Thursday from our in-house computer model.  Notice that a few spots may push totals to around 1.50″-2.00″.  Remember to click on the image to enlarge.

By Friday, the clouds will begin to break and some sunshine will finally emerge!  This weekend looks dry with sunshine both days.  By Sunday, temperatures should climb well into the 60s.

Below is a temperature forecast from the 12Z NAM(North American Model).  This shows around 65 degrees in Milwaukee.  To get a better view of the map, just click on it to enlarge.

  1. So Jeremy has May been following the LRC so far this month? It is easier to keep track of in the winter, as in the late spring and early summer the weather can be more to local factors.

    • Bryan,

      The weather pattern continues to repeat! Now that the jet stream is lifting north and the overall flow isn’t as strong as it was in the winter it does become more difficult to show some of the smaller features. I will repost the May forecast again in the next day or two. I did call for below average precipitation…and I think once the rain ends on Thursday, that the second half of the month should be pretty dry. We may end up around average…but I don’t think the very wet pattern of this week will continue.
