***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! The sunshine was great the past two days, but clouds and showers are creeping back toward southeast Wisconsin.
Low pressure is actually retrograding, or moving from east to west. The western edge of the clouds and showers will move over southeast Wisconsin on Wednesday. The chance for showers is pretty low, but a few light showers or sprinkles can’t be ruled out. Below is the RPM forecast for early Wednesday, this shows some light showers in our area. Again this WILL NOT be an all day washout.
The threat for a light shower or sprinkle may linger into Thursday, but overall the rain chance will again be low. Friday will be a nice day, think of it as a transitional day between one batch of clouds/showers and the next chance of rain over the weekend.
That weekend rain chance will be dealt with more in the coming days and on WISN 12 News, but here is the surface set-up for Saturday morning. Low pressure to the west will push clouds and a chance of showers into our area sometime Saturday.
I’m really wishcasting that the rain holds off until later Saturday as I am kicking off the Healing Center’s 5K run/walk at South Shore Park in Bay View. Please come out and support a great cause and say hi!
Finally, if the recent cool weather has you down, this picture may help. I took this picture of a cumulus cloud trying to grow into a thunderstorm(cumulonimbus cloud) last Thursday. The picture was taken around 19th and Wells in Milwaukee looking west.
Generally seeing a cloud like this makes me think of warmer weather, something we really need in our area to raise spirits again! That warmer weather may arrive this weekend into early next week for a time.
For more on the summer forecast, check out these two links which talk in detail about the coming days. I received a few requests for the links, so here you go!
and here is the video version of that forecast
Have a great day!
