Normal March temps return in Milwaukee

Normal March temps return in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE - After a March that has brought temperatures as high as the 80's, Mother Nature has returned a dose of early spring back to the Milwaukee area.

"Southeast Wisconsin is in for a quick snap back to reality," said Storm team 4Caster Jesse Ritka.

"Temperatures today will be 15-20 degrees cooler than Sunday...but that's actually normal for March.  It will just feel colder under mostly to partly cloudy skies because it's been more than two weeks since we've had 'normal' temperatures and the breezy wind off the lake at 10-20mph will not help either."

Jesse warns us that a chance of storms and showers could come with a warm front moving in, before a return to warmer temperatures.

"A trailing cold front swings through Tuesday afternoon and that adds another chance for showers and thunderstorms through Tuesday night," said Jesse.
