Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
245 AM CST Fri Dec 2 2016
Low pressure continued to push northeast of the Great Lakes, but its
effects were felt through the day. Most of the state was situated
beneath overcast skies all day long. There were even some
isolated light rain and snow across Wisconsin. Temperatures were
fairly stagnant through the day, with morning lows in the low 30s
and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 30s.
Skies were cloudy across the Badgerland during the overnight hours.
There was some patchy sprinkles and drizzle from time to time but
for the most part it was just overcast. Temperatures dropped off
into the mid 20s to mid 30s.
A gradually departing low pressure trough lingering over the Great
Lakes area will keep us mostly cloudy today. A northwest flow will
produce some light lake effect snow showers over parts of northern
Wisconsin today. Elsewhere, dry conditions are expected into
Saturday as a ridge of high pressure slowly replaces the departed
low pressure trough.
The next chance for light snow across Wisconsin will be later
Saturday night and into Sunday when weak low pressure moves through
the region. Snowfall amounts are expected to be an inch or less,
with some rain mixing with the snow during the afternoon across
central and southern Wisconsin.
