834 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017
Much of the rain that affected the region this morning moved off to
the north during the afternoon. Areas of fog and drizzle still
persisted, though. Today`s high temperatures occurred this morning,
and ranged from the mid 50s over southeast Minnesota into central
Wisconsin to the lower 60s across southern Wisconsin. By this
evening, temperatures had dropped into the upper 30s to mid 40s.
Another round of rain showers is expected to move into Wisconsin
from the south overnight, lasting into Thursday morning.
Temperatures may become cold enough to allow snow, freezing rain,
and sleet to mix in with the rain Thursday morning, mainly over
northwest into central Wisconsin. Some minor accumulations of snow
and ice may be possible. Look for colder temperatures tonight, with
lows in the 30s. Highs on Thursday will only reach the 40s.
After a brief period of dry weather Thursday afternoon through
Thursday night, chances for rain will return to southern portions of
the area Friday and Saturday. This will be followed by widespread
rain across the region late Saturday into Monday. There will be a
potential for snow to mix with the rain during the overnight and
early morning hours on Sunday and Monday.
