Breezy Monday, possible storms tonight in Milwaukee area

MILWAUKEE - After a month that was the warmest March on record in the Milwaukee area, April's first week begins with seasonal temperatures and cool breezes in Southeastern Wisconsin.

"As breezy winds continue to flow off of Lake Michigan, temperatures will continue to be cooler right along side it," said Storm Team 4Caster Jesse Ritka.

Jesse tells us, though, that storms could come through in the evening.

"Tonight an area of low pressure slips to our south, bringing a good chance for scattered showers and occasional thunderstorms to move through southeast Wisconsin tonight.  Some showers may linger into Tuesday morning with most locations picking up a good quarter of an inch of rain."

She told us that skies would become much clearer on Tuesday afternoon, with a slight warm-up.

"Wednesday starts a decent dry spell in the 7 day planner with mostly sunny skies expected through Saturday.  Temperatures will be slightly above average in the 50s.  The next chance for rain comes late Saturday night and into Easter Sunday morning."
