Strengthening low pressure tracked from northeast Iowa into the
Upper Peninsula of Michigan. An accompanying cold front swept
through Wisconsin, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms
ahead of the front. Some of the storms produced heavy rainfall,
with over 2 inches observed in portions of southeast Wisconsin.
High temperatures ranged from the mid 60s in northwest Wisconsin,
to around 80 in southeast Wisconsin.
A strong trough of low pressure shifted eastward across the
region. This feature brought clouds and some showers to northern
Wisconsin. Some of these clouds moved into central and southern
Wisconsin as well. Breezy west winds lingered, and continued to
bring cooler and drier air into the region. Temperatures so far
ranged from the mid to upper 50s across the state.
A trough of low pressure will move east of the region today. Some
lingering clouds and light showers are forecast for parts of
northern and eastern Wisconsin.
Otherwise, high pressure will slide to the south of the region
today into Monday. The high will bring quiet weather, with breezy
west winds weakening. Temperatures will be below seasonal normals
today and tonight, moderating on Monday.
Increasing south to southwest winds Monday into Tuesday will bring
a warmer and more humid airmass into the region. A trough of low
pressure will bring the next chances for showers and storms
Tuesday night into early Wednesday. A passing cold front will
bring more chances for showers and storms Wednesday afternoon into
Wednesday night. Warm and humid conditions are expected.
