Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
421 AM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017


High clouds moved over the Badger State ahead of an approaching
low pressure system. That low also brought southerly winds, which
helped usher temperatures into the 60s in northern Wisconsin and
the 70s in southern Wisconsin. Areas along Lake Superior were the
cold spot, where temperatures struggled to make it out of the 40s.


Clouds continued to stream into the state and there were even some
isolated showers in northwestern Wisconsin. Winds were generally
light out of the southeast. Low temperatures were rather warm
across much of the state, only falling into the low 50s. However,
areas along Lake Michigan and Lake Superior were much cooler
thanks to winds blowing off the lake.


An active period will begin on Tuesday as low pressure moves into
Wisconsin. Rain will move into western Wisconsin on Tuesday
afternoon and slowly push eastward. By Wednesday morning, rain
will be falling across much of the state and by Wednesday
afternoon, there will be a chance of thunderstorms across much of
eastern Wisconsin. Precipitation should finally move out of the
state by Thursday afternoon, but not before some snow and even
some freezing rain mix in over northwest Wisconsin on Thursday
morning. After a brief break in the precipitation Thursday
afternoon and Friday morning, more unsettled weather is will move
in for the weekend.
