Weather Summary for North-Central and Northeast Wisconsin

1025 AM CDT WED JUL 27 2016
Showers and scattered thunderstorms continued to develop across
the region this morning. The thunderstorms were not very strong,
but a few produced brief heavy downpours and wind gusts to 25 to
30 mph. Several locations in north central Wisconsin reported
around a quarter inch of rainfall. There was a large difference in
late morning temperatures, ranging from rain cooled 60s in north
central Wisconsin to muggy readings in the upper 70s and lower 80s
in central and east central Wisconsin.
A Canadian cold front will continue to sag south across Wisconsin
this afternoon and tonight. The front will combine with an upper
level disturbance approaching from Minnesota to produce numerous
showers and thunderstorms. Given the presence of a very moist
air mass, some of the storms will produce torrential rainfall.
Local urban flooding is possible later this afternoon and tonight.
The chances for showers and storms will gradually end from north
to south late tonight into Thursday. This will be followed by
dry, cooler and less humid conditions for the end of the week, as
Canadian high pressure settles over the northern Great Lakes.
