WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
358 AM CDT FRI SEP 23 2016
.YESTERDAY...A stationary frontal boundary brought partly to mostly
cloudy skies to the Badgerland Thursday, along with abundant
rainfall to many locations. Rainfall amounts mainly ranged between
one-half of an inch up to four inches in some spots, with isolated
locations receiving more than four inches.
High temperatures were once again warmer than average, with highs
reaching 5 to 10 degrees above seasonal averages in some spots.
Highs ranged from the mid to upper 60s north to the mid to upper 70s
south. Winds were variable between 5 and 20 miles per hour.
Rain and a few thunderstorms persisted across far southwestern
Wisconsin, but rainfall amounts remained on the lighter side as
compared to the past few days. Temperatures were the coolest in
the northeast portion of the state with lows in the 50s there.
Otherwise, much of the state stayed in the 60s overnight.
Rain will continue to push southward of Wisconsin today with
cooler air moving in across the state as a ridge of high pressure
tracks through southeast Canada. The next chance for rain will
come on Saturday as the next system moves in from the west. A cold
front will sweep across the state on Sunday which will help to
usher in colder air going into early next week. A band of rain and
thunderstorms is expected to move through as well ahead of this
