WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
520 AM CDT MON AUG 18 2014

.YESTERDAY... A WEAK AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE KEPT THE MAJORITY OF THE
STATE PLEASANT AND DRY FOR SUNDAY. A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM BROUGHT
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO EXTREME WEST CENTRAL WISCONSIN. SKIES
WERE PARTLY SUNNY THROUGHOUT THE STATE. HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE IN
THE LOWER TO MID 70S...EXCEPT IN THE LOWER TO MID 60S ALONG LAKE
MICHIGAN. WINDS WERE MAINLY FROM THE EAST AT 5-10 MILES PER HOUR.

.OVERNIGHT...

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MOVED ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL
WISCONSIN AHEAD OF LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING IN THE UPPER MIDWEST.
SOME THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCED HEAVY RAINFALL...WITH ONE TO TWO INCH
PER HOUR RAIN RATES. MEANWHILE... AREAS OF DENSE FOG DEVELOPED
ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN WI OVERNIGHT DUE TO LIGHT WINDS AND
MOIST AIR. LOW TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE LOWER 50S NORTHEAST TO
THE MID 60S WEST.

.FORECAST...

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL OVERSPREAD WISCONSIN TODAY AND
TONIGHT AS LOW PRESSURE OVER THE NORTHERN PLAINS SLOWLY MOVES INTO
THE GREAT LAKES REGION.

THAT LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL STALL OVER THE REGION THROUGH
WEDNESDAY. LOOK FOR THE SHOWERS AND STORMS TO TAPER OFF FROM
SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO WEDNESDAY AS DRIER AIR
WRAPS INTO THE AREA.

THEN A WARM FRONT WILL SHIFT FROM THE MIDWEST UP INTO WISCONSIN
WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THE WEEKEND.  THIS WILL USHER IN SOME HOT
AND HUMID AIR...AS WELL AS MORE ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
