in the afternoon across central and east central Wisconsin. Some
fog was noted over northern Wisconsin as well.
Gusty west winds occurred over southern Wisconsin, with winds
becoming northwest in the afternoon across northern Wisconsin.
High temperatures ranged from the upper 30s to lower 40s in far
northern Wisconsin, to the middle to upper 60s in far southeast
There was a good deal of lingering cloud cover across the
Badgerland though the west saw more breaks than the east. There
were patches of light rain and drizzle and even some flakes in
parts of the north. Temperatures dropped off into the 30s to low
40s in the north with mainly 40s in the south.
A few showers could clip the north Saturday night into Sunday

temperatures as readings rise above normal.
Rounds of wet weather are expected to return later Monday through
much of the upcoming week as multiple low pressure systems move
through the region.
