Small shower chance along the border heading into Mother's Day

NOW: Small shower chance along the border heading into Mother’s Day

It's been a rather cool day across most of southeast Wisconsin. Temperatures starting at or below freezing in most inland locations this morning.

An easterly breezy has kept temps in the low 40s to near 50 lakeside today with mid 50s well inland. After some sunshine, clouds have been thickening up late this afternoon as an area of rain slowly attempts to push east. 

Cloud cover will continue to thicken through this evening, but most of southeast Wisconsin should remain dry. The best chance for some light rain late this evening and overnight will be along the Wisconsin/Illinois border. 

Dry air should with the battle across most of the area and keep the brunt of the rain in Illinois Sunday morning, but we can't rule out some light rain bushing the Wisconsin/Illinois border. 

A few peeks of sunshine will mix with the clouds during the afternoon on Mother's Day, but a breezy northeast wind gusting up to 30 mph will hold temps in near 50 lakeside and lower 50s inland.

Lingering clouds and a small chance for stray shower Sunday night should prevent any frost formation, but clearing skies and light winds Monday night could bring another round of frost away from the lake.

After a cool start to the week, temperatures will be on a slow warming trend back into the 60s by Wednesday and Thursday.
