Low clouds and some fog blanketed much of southern and central
Wisconsin on Thursday. Meanwhile, skies in northern Wisconsin
were partly sunny. Some light rain pushed north into southern
sections of the state by mid-afternoon.
It was another day of well above normal temperatures. The normal
high temperatures for this time of year are in the 20s. High
temperatures on Thursday in Wisconsin were in the 30s and 40s. The
warm spot was Land O Lakes in northern Wisconsin which is frequently
the cold spot this time of year. The high temperature at Land O
Lakes was 49 which is 25-30 degrees above normal.
Winds on Thursday were south to southeasterly 5 to 10 miles an hour.
Low clouds and fog continue to blanket most of Wisconsin
overnight. Rain and drizzle moved into southern Wisconsin during
the evening, and advanced into central sections of the state
overnight. Early morning temperatures ranged from the upper 20s
north, to the mid 30s south.
Look for mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures this weekend.
Weak low pressure passing to our west will bring a slight chance
for light rain, along with widespread drizzle and fog.
The next shot at widespread precipitation is on Tuesday night
into Wednesday as strong low pressure passes by to our south. The
precipitation should start as snow in northwest Wisconsin, and
possibly a mix elsewhere. The precipitation should gradually
transition to mostly snow on Wednesday as temperatures cool.
