for late February. High temperatures Friday ranged from 24 at

southern Wisconsin, there was only drizzle and freezing drizzle on
Winds were northeast to northerly 10 to 20 miles an hour with some

some clearing far west later in the night. Northwest winds
remained breezy through the evening and overnight hours. Low

into Sunday. Below normal temperatures today will recover quickly
to above normal on Sunday.

expected to slowly cool through the remainder of the work week.
