...Record Warmth Wednesday...

.DISCUSSION...An area of low pressure will scoot across northern
Wisconsin Wednesday. This system will draw record warm air into
the area with some portions of southwest and central Wisconsin
topping out near 70 degrees. This system could also produce some
light rain across northern Wisconsin. A much stronger system will
then move into the Midwest for the end of the week. This system
will bring a wintry mix to the region with the potential for rain,
snow and even some icing. Snow accumulations of 4 to 7 inches
currently look possible along and north of Interstate 90 with 1 to
3 inches farther south where more rain should fall. Behind this
system, it will return to more seasonable conditions for the
upcoming weekend.
