NOW: Remaining windy and cold throughout the day Sunday

Updated: Sunday, November 1st 7:30 am:

Winds are howling across southeast Wisconsin this morning with gusts between 35-45 mph.

These strong winds will continue into the mid afternoon hours with frequent gusts up to 40-45 mph. A few gusts may approach 50 mph near the lake. The strongest winds will start to diminish after sunset as high pressure builds into the area.

Due to the strong winds, a Wind Advisory has been issued for all of southeast Wisconsin through 2pm this afternoon.


Clear skies and calm winds most of last night allowed temperatures to tank into the low to mid 20s. It was the first time Milwaukee has been in the 20s since April 16th.

Temperatures have warmed up nicely into the mid to upper 50s thanks to the sunshine and strong southerly winds, which is around 15-20 degrees warmer than Friday afternoon!

Winds have been gusting between 30-40 mph throughout the afternoon and could exceed 40 mph this evening ahead of a cold front.

The cold front will trigger a few isolated light rain showers between 9pm - 1am as it moves through.

We'll see a brief lull in the strong winds this evening as the cold front moves through, but winds will ramp back up overnight into Sunday afternoon. The strongest gusts up to 45 mph will be possible after midnight through noon on Sunday before "tapering off" between 30-35 mph Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures will quickly fall into the 30s behind the cold front and will only rise into the mid 30s Sunday afternoon. Combined with the strong winds and it'll feel more like the upper teens Sunday morning and mid 20s Sunday afternoon.

Thankfully this cold weather will only be around on Sunday. While it'll still be breezy on Monday (25-30 mph gusts), winds will be from the west and help temps warm back up to 50°. Southwest winds and plenty of sunshine will help temps warm back into the upper 50s to low 60s for the rest of the week.
