Good Thursday! Scattered showers have been on-going in the overnight and we can expect a pattern of scattered showers to continue through the morning hours. Temperatures begin the day in the middle to upper 50s and will be slow to move upward today due to cloud cover and expected periods of rainfall.
The most widespread showers and storms are likely to develop this afternoon and carry into this evening. Heavy pockets of rain will certainly be possible. The mercury tops out near 70 degrees this afternoon as breezy winds shift to the east and then southeast at 10-15 mph.
Mostly cloudy skies carry through the overnight tonight into early Friday morning along with a spotty shower. Lows fall back into the lower half of the 50s.
Tomorrow brings lots of clouds through mid-afternoon and coupled with windy northwesterly flow, we can expect a fall-like feel out and about with readings only reaching the middle 60s. A few showers will also be scattered across Northeast Wisconsin. Some breaks for sun may emerge by later in the afternoon but too late in the game to help warm us up to any significant degree.
The weekend forecast stays unchanged with partly sunny skies expected along with some pop-up afternoon showers, even a thundershower or two. Many hours will be dry over the weekend but we will need to keep an eye out for a quick downpour shifting in to impact any outdoor events taking place. One good thing is that the mercury rebounds and reaches the middle 70s on Saturday and Sunday.
A spotty afternoon shower cannot be ruled out Monday afternoon as well but activity should be pretty widely scattered by early next workweek. A bit of sunshine works into the mix on Monday and helps push temps as high as the middle 70s.
Tuesday and Wednesday give a mix of sun and clouds and warmer numbers headed for the upper 70s for daytime highs. A new shower, perhaps a thundershower, may be back on board by later Wednesday.
