NOW: Another warm and sunny day today before rain moves back in this weekend

Another warm, summer-like day is expected across southeast Wisconsin today, but temps will be a couple degrees cooler lakeside thanks to a southeast wind. Highs likely reach the low to mid 80s inland this afternoon with upper 70s lakeside.

While we aren't under a Red Flad Warning today, we still have very high to extreme fire danger in southeast Wisconsin due to the dry vegetation. Thankfully the wind won't be as strong as the last few days, mainly staying between 5-15 mph.

We will also have to deal with elevated levels of ozone today, so all of southeast Wisconsin is under an Air Quality Advisory through midnight. Folks with lung issues, young kids, elderly folks, and those who work outside should limit the amount of time they're doing strenuous activities outside today.

Temps will still be mild on Saturday, but clouds will be on the increase ahead of a slow moving low pressure system. This could generate a few isolated showers and storms Saturday afternoon and evening. We can't rule out stronger storms with hail and gusty winds, but the better chance for severe weather is to our south.

Rain and rumbles of thunder will become more widespread Saturday night into Sunday. Sunday will be a rather soggy day with temps closer to normal in the 50s.

Unfortunately, this low pressure looks to sit and spin over us Sunday and Monday. By Sunday night, colder air will wrap into the backside of this system, which will unfortunately change the rain over to wet snow. Wet snow continues Monday morning with minor accumulation possible on the grass, mainly well inland and northwest of Milwaukee.
