Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1002 AM CDT Tue Sep 26 2017


It was another hot day across all but the northwestern and west
central portion of the state. A cold front with clouds and rain
held temperatures in the 60s and 70s in those areas. Rain fell
northwest of a line from southwestern Wisconsin to Green Bay.
Amounts were generally less than an inch, although portions of
north central and southwestern Wisconsin saw totals of 1 to 2
inches. Elsewhere, temperatures once again soared into the 80s and
lower 90s. Madison set yet another record high at 90 degrees.
That made 4 days in a row and 5 out of the past six days with a
new record high temperature. Lows were in the 50s and 60s last


The cold front will move through the rest of the state today and
tonight bringing a chance for scattered showers. Unfortunately,
rainfall amounts will be on the light side, generally less than
one quarter of an inch. The front will also bring an end to the
record heat wave, but before it does, the far southeastern
portion of the state will have one more very warm day with high
temperatures forecast to reach the 80s southeast of a line from
southwestern Wisconsin to Green Bay. The far southeastern corner
of the state may make another run at 90 this afternoon but the
amounts of clouds will determine how warm it is able to get. Lows
tonight should fall into 40s across the northwestern half of
Wisconsin and the 50s to the southeast. Tomorrow will feel much
cooler with a northwest breeze and temperatures closer to normal
with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s across the northern
portion of the state and mid to upper 60s across the south.
