Late night forecast for the weekend and the beginning of August, Milwaukee. What do we have for you?
At 1145PM, CT, Milwaukee was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 71 degrees. Given the course of the summer, of significantly more importance was the dew point temperature, parked in the low 50s. Dry high pressure was in place over the Upper Midwest, thanks mostly to a more organized trough pooling moisture to the east.
Guidance suggests a weak upper level jet streak allowing a lee trough in the northern Plains to maintain itself through the day tomorrow. The jet will meld with the broader trough to the east of Milwaukee as a lobe on the southwest side of the broader feature. Shower and thunderstorm activity will be possible in the morning on Sunday, however the heaviest activity will be reserved for Lake Michigan and the state of Michigan to the east in the evening.

Seems as though showers are going to be on their way sooner rather than later. Again, though, it will just be some showers, rather than thunderstorms. Tough to see anything coming yet, however.
