WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
336 AM CST Tue Dec 6 2016
During the morning hours on Monday, skies were partly sunny in
northern Wisconsin but clouds moved in during the afternoon. In
southern Wisconsin, skies were cloudy all day. There was some very
light precipitation in the form of drizzle or snow flurries.
In the cloudy areas, temperatures were nearly steady during the day.
High temperatures were all in the 30s...near the normal for his time
of year...with the exception of Ashland where the high temperature
was 41 under partial sunshine.
Winds started out light and variable but trended southerly to
southeasterly 5 to 15 miles an hour by afternoon.
A cold front brought mainly light snow to western portions of the
state overnight. The snow was mixed with rain and drizzle at times
in milder areas. Patchy fog developed in many areas across the
state. Skies remained mostly cloudy through the night, with low
temperatures ranging from the upper 20s and low 30s northwest, to
mainly the low 30s elsewhere.
An area of light snow will move through mainly the northwest half
of Wisconsin today as a cold front passes through the area. A
little drizzle or freezing drizzle is possible on the leading edge
of the precipitation.
Snow chances will linger in the north Wednesday through Friday,
but it will likely be dry elsewhere as high pressure builds in
from the west. Below normal temperatures will prevail for the
second half of the work week.
Low pressure may bring accumulating snow to much of the state by
later Saturday into Sunday. This system is still a few days out
though, so there is plenty of time for details to change. Below
normal temperatures will likely continue over the weekend.
High temperatures today will range from the upper 20s and low 30s
in northwest Wisconsin, to the mid and upper 30s in the east.
Lows tonight will range from the mid and upper teens northwest, to
the low 20s east.
