Tonight will be mainly clear with temperatures close to freezing near the shore and upper 20s inland. Monday a southeast wind will allow temperatures to climb into the low 50s lakeside and upper 50s inland with increasing clouds as a warm front approaches. That front will bring the chance for some light rain shower mainly after 5pm and a few thunderstorms possible overnight.
We'll feel the warmer air on Tuesday with temperatures climbing into the mid-60s near Lake Michigan and close to 70 degrees inland although it will be mostly cloudy through most of the day. A weak cold front moves through in the evening hours to bring a chance of showers and a storm or two but the real thunder will be down to our south in Illinois and Indiana.
Wednesday will still be mild for April with a high near 60 degrees in Milwaukee and most of the day will be dry and partly cloudy. A more impressive cold front swings through Wednesday evening to touch off some showers but this front is more of a temperature dropper with highs falling into the mid-40s for Thursday with clearing skies and breezy wind. Friday is dry and cool with highs in the mid-40s although the wind will not be as strong. The next two major storm systems to move through will be on Saturday and Monday when we could be looking at a rain-snow mix from each.
