310 AM CST Sun Jan 15 2017
Skies in southern Wisconsin started out mostly cloudy Saturday but
sunshine broke through the clouds by late morning. Skies in northern
Wisconsin were mostly sunny all day.
High temperatures in Wisconsin on Saturday ranged from 16 at Medford
to 36 at Milwaukee. The normal high temperatures for the middle of
January are in the 20s.
Winds started out light and variable but trended westerly 5 to 10
miles an hour in the afternoon.
Skies were mostly clear with just a few high clouds brushing the far
south. Temperatures dropped off into the 5 below to 10 below zero
range in much of the north with single digits to around 10 above in
A large area of high pressure will keep things dry today through
this evening. Temperatures will also warm closer to seasonal normals
Attention will then turn towards low pressure developing in the
southern Plains that will track toward the Upper Midwest and bring a
return of wintery weather to Wisconsin beginning tonight and
continuing into Tuesday. At this time it looks like a period of
mixed precipitation will affect central and southern Wisconsin with
snow more likely across the north. As warmer gets pulled into the
system portions of the south will see the mix change to rain later
Monday into Tuesday.
