Chance of Rain Ahead

***Watch WISN 12 News at 10pm for the latest weather information!

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 Blog!  I just want to remind everyone to watch for the 2010-11 winter forecast coming the week of Thanksgiving! 

After a string of beautiful Fall days, the weather is about to change.  Afterall, we can’t expect 60s to stick around through November.  The change will bring cooler weather, but nothing really cold…yet.

If you are wondering how many high temperatures we have had in the 60s this month in Milwaukee compared to past November’s, here is your answer.  This info was compiled by the NWS.


With the 60s behind us for a while, or maybe even until next Spring, let’s talk more about what’s ahead.  As discussed in yesterday’s blog and on WISN 12 News, a storm is headed our way for the weekend.

The storm will spread clouds across the region Friday, and even some pockets of drizzle or a few sprinkles are possible.  Most of the rain showers will hold off until Saturday though.  And again, it does not look like an all day rain.  But do have the rain gear ready or a plan ‘B’ if the rain finds your outdoor plans.

Below is a rainfall forecast for the region from our in-house high resolution computer model.  This rainfall forecast is thru Saturday.  Just click to enlarge.


With the center of low pressure either near or just west of Milwaukee, the bulk of the heavier rain should stay in the western part of the state.  At this moment, totals in southeast Wisconsin look to stay under a half inch.

Make sure to watch WISN 12 News for the latest on the weekend.  In the meantime, please feel free to post your thoughts or questions in the comments section of the blog.

I’m working hard on the winter forecast, and again, look for that the week of Thanksgiving!

Have a great day!

  1. It’s going to be tough to say good-bye to the beautiful weather of this past week. On the positive side, it’s almost the middle of Nov. already and haven’t had to use the furnace much so far…great for the heat bill.
    It has been an awesome Fall.

    Question regarding the weather pattern that started to set up in Oct. Since we have had so much mild weather in Oct. and Nov. is it possible that this will continue for each of the cycles coming up in the next months? I sure hope so. I’m not expecting 50’s and 60’s in Dec. and Jan., but 30″s would be nice.

    • Last year’s way below average October didn’t translate in future cycles so I don’t think we can get our hopes up with regards to this October’s above average temps carrying over into future cycles. I’m more concerned about the low temps though. Highs in the 20s, 30s, or 40s don’t make much of a difference to me, but lows below zero feel much worse than lows in the teens and 20s.
