WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
330 AM CDT SUN JUL 13 2014

.YESTERDAY...THE COMBINATION OF AN APPROACHING WARM FRONT FROM THE
SOUTH AND A WARM HUMID AIRMASS PRODUCED WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PARTS OF THE STATE ON
SATURDAY.  LITTLE OR NO RAIN WAS IN EXTREME NORTHERN PARTS OF THE
STATE.  THE PRECIPITATION MOVED FROM WEST TO EAST ACROSS THE STATE
AND WAS MOST NUMEROUS DURING THE AFTERNOON. SOME AREAS RECEIVED
BRIEF HEAVY RAIN SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

THE PRECIPITATION AND WIDESPREAD CLOUDINESS KEPT HIGH TEMPERATURES
MAINLY IN THE 70S...A LITTLE BELOW NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.
HUMIDITY LEVELS WERE ON THE HIGH SIDE.

WINDS ON SATURDAY WERE VARIABLE IN DIRECTION DUE TO THE WIDESPREAD
PRECIPITATION.  WIND SPEEDS WERE GENERALLY 5 TO 15 MILES AN HOUR.

.OVERNIGHT...RAIN WAS WIDESPREAD SATURDAY EVENING IN ABOUT THE
SOUTHEAST ONE-THIRD OF THE STATE. THERE WERE SOME LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINS AND SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS. TEMPERATURES DROPPED OFF INTO THE
LOW TO MID 60S.

.FORECAST...A WEAK TROUGH MAY GENERATE A FEW SHOWERS IN PARTS OF
SOUTHERN WISCONSIN TODAY BUT THE STATE WILL BE DRY FOR THE MOST
PART. AN UNSEASONABLY STRONG COLD FRONT WILL DROP DOWN THROUGH
WISCONSIN TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. COOL WEATHER FOR MID JULY WILL THEN
SETTLE ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES REGION THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THIS
WEEK...WITH A SLOW WARM UP FOR THE END OF THE WEEK.

THERE MAY BE A FEW SHOWERS FROM TIME TO TIME MONDAY AND TUESDAY
BEFORE DRIER AIR AND HIGH PRESSURE TAKE HOLD.
