Sunny, 70's in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE - Summer-like conditions are expected on what Storm Team 4Caster Scott Steele predicts to be a picture postcard-like Friday in Milwaukee.

"High pressure that brought us a beautiful day (Thursday) will maintain its hold on our region for Friday," said Scott. 

"The eastward shifting ridge will send a return flow of southerly breezes helping boost our temperatures well above seasonal averages.  Highs will reach the low to mid 70s today."

Scott tells us that some rain and storms could come later tonight.

"A cool front approaches us tonight and could trigger some showers and thunderstorms.  The disturbance looks to be well timed, departing quickly enough to return dry weather for the weekend.  There will be more clouds than sun on Saturday, though."
