Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1042 AM CDT Tue Jul 18 2017


The weather has been relatively quiet across the Badgerland. Most
of the state was dry and skies were generally clear to partly
cloudy. The exception was northwestern Wisconsin where a line of
thunderstorms quickly pushed through in the evening hours before
dying out. Another area of showers and storms moved in this
morning. High temperatures on Monday ranged from the mid 80s in
far western Wisconsin to the low 70s along Lake Michigan. Low
temperatures this morning ranged from the low 70s in western
Wisconsin to the upper 50s in portions of southeastern Wisconsin.


A more active period will begin tonight as the first of several
rounds of storms pushes through the state. Showers and storms can
be expected again from Wednesday night into Thursday, and then
potentially again on Thursday night into Friday. Even more storms
are possible as we move into the weekend. The primary threat with
each round is the potential for heavy rainfall over the already
swollen areas across the state. However, there is also a slight
risk of severe thunderstorms across northern and western Wisconsin
tonight, as well as a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms on
Wednesday and Thursday.
