Wisconsin Weather Summary

250 AM CST Tue Feb 14 2017
The badgerland was once again impacted by high pressure to the south
and low pressure to the north. The high, which passed to the south
of the state, resulted in mostly clear skies and caused the winds to
be out of the south for much of the day. This meant warm
temperatures, with highs in the 40s across the state. In the
evening, low pressure passed well to the north and shifted winds
to the west in northern Wisconsin.
A batch of mid and high level clouds moved across northern
Wisconsin. Otherwise skies were generally clear across the state.
Temperatures were in the upper 20s to mid 30s, well above average
nighttime readings for this time of the year.
An upper air disturbance will touch off some rain or snow showers
today across the state with some snow showers or flurries lingering
this evening. A surge of colder air in the wake of the cold front
will linger over the Badgerland for the next few days. In addition,
the colder air should result in some snow showers over the northern
half of the state today, especially in the Lake Superior snowbelt
High pressure slides across the area Wednesday into Thursday,
keeping it dry and cool.
Low pressure will then roll across southern Canada late in the week
and into the weekend. Southerly winds ahead of the low will pull
warmer temperatures north into the Great Lakes region for Friday
through Sunday. It also looks dry through the weekend.
