338 AM CDT Sat Apr 29 2017
Partly to mostly cloudy skies prevailed over the region during the
overnight hours. Low temperatures ranged from the middle to upper
20s north, to around 40 degrees across east-central Wisconsin.
An area of high pressure is expected to move across Ontario and
northern sections of the Great Lakes today and initially bring
partly cloudy skies to the region. However, clouds are forecast to
increase this afternoon from south to north as a new weather
system organizes over the southern Plains. A few light rain
showers are also possible across southern sections of the region
late this afternoon.
This system is forecast to lift northeast through the central
Plains and mid-Mississippi Valley tonight into Sunday, strengthen
in the process, and move into the Great Lakes region on Monday.
Gulf moisture will surge northward into Wisconsin ahead of the
system with locally heavy rainfall expected Sunday night into
Monday. While most locations will see around an inch of rain,
parts of east-central Wisconsin could see up to 2 inches of
precipitation. Gusty northeast winds will also precede the arrival
of this system with gusts surpassing 30 mph on Sunday.
