457 AM CDT Thu Mar 16 2017


After a chilly start to the day, sunshine and lighter winds
allowed temperatures to rise into the lower to middle 30s across
most of southern and western Wisconsin on Wednesday, and into the
middle to upper 20s across northeast Wisconsin. These temperatures
remained below the seasonal average for mid-March.


Clear skies were observed across Wisconsin, as high pressure slid
to the south of the region. Temperatures so far ranged from the
single digits above zero in far northern Wisconsin, to the teens


High pressure will move out of the region today. Highs will reach
the upper 30s to lower 40s. South to southeast winds will then
increase later today into tonight, bringing warmer and more moist
air into the region. A cold front will then move east through the
region Friday morning.

Light rain and light snow is expected tonight into early Friday in
Wisconsin. Some sleet and freezing rain will mix in at times,
especially across northern and eastern Wisconsin. Light snow and
ice accumulations are possible, highest in northern and central
Wisconsin. This may affect the Friday early morning commute.

Lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 20s in northeast
Wisconsin, to the lower to mid 30s in southwest Wisconsin. Gusty
west northwest winds Friday afternoon and night will bring colder
temperatures into the area. Chances for light snow will linger in
northern Wisconsin.

Quiet weather and milder temperatures are forecast for the
upcoming weekend.
