***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 Blog! Another weekend is upon us and just like the past several it should be dry. That is the easy part of the forecast, the tougher question is how far will temperatures fall behind a cold front? In this blog entry we will breakdown the weekend forecast and focus on the cooldown that is on the horizon.
Over the past several weeks the weather has been very quiet, which is good from the standpoint of enjoying time outdoors, but bad if you love active weather and Fall storms. With the lack of active weather around, it has given me a great opportunity to show some of our viewer photos that we receive each day. Our Weather Watch 12 team is blessed to have some awesome amatuer photographers across southeast Wisconsin.

As hunter’s flock to area lakes this weekend, and people flood into pumpkin fields across the state, the weather should not be a huge concern.
On Saturday, a cold front will march across the state. Here in southeast Wisconsin the front will not arrive until late afternoon or early evening. That means the sunshine will be warming a mild airmass during the peak of daytime heating. This should result in daytime highs around 70, a great start to the weekend!
Below is a forecast surface map valid at 1 p.m. Saturday. The blue line represents the cold front still west of Milwaukee at 1 p.m.
Once the front clears the state, cooler weather will flow into the region. The process will be somewhat slow, but enough to push highs back into the low 60s on Sunday. By Sunday afternoon, high clouds will begin increasing across the region.
As a weak disturbance moves by on Monday a few showers will be possible, but still no big storms in sight, for now! Make sure to check back this weekend for additional updates, and you can always follow us on Facebook at WeatherWatch12 and on Twitter at WISN12News
Have a great weekend!
