Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
907 AM CST Wed Feb 21 2018


Low pressure moving northeast of the region brought a cold front
eastward through Wisconsin on Tuesday. Rain, moderate to heavy at
times, moved through mainly southern and east central Wisconsin
during the day. A few thundestorms occurred in far southern
Wisconsin. The rain continued to bring flooding to some rivers
and lowland areas, including several roads that were closed.

Otherwise, brisk west winds pushed into the state from the west,
and brought colder and drier air. This helped push the rain east
of the region by early Tuesday evening. The brisk west northwest
winds lingered overnight, with clearing skies in western
Wisconsin. Some clouds lingered across eastern Wisconsin.

Highs Tuesday were in the 20s in northern Wisconsin, to the 30s to
middle 40s in southern Wisconsin. There were some 50s in far
southeast Wisconsin as well. Lows Tuesday night ranged from the
single digits below zero to single digits above zero across
northern Wisconsin, to the upper teens to middle 20s across
southern Wisconsin.


High pressure will bring a period of quiet weather across
Wisconsin today and tonight, with cold temperatures. Low pressure
moving northeast through the region Thursday night into Friday
will bring a round of mixed precipitation to the state. Mainly
snow is expected across northern and most of central Wisconsin,
with a few inches of accumulation possible.

A mix of freezing rain and sleet is possible across southern
Wisconsin, which may cause a glazing on roads. This system will
impact travel Thursday night into Friday morning, including the
Friday morning commute. Temperatures look to be near seasonal
normals during this period.

Another low pressure system moving northeast through the region
later Saturday into Saturday night will bring the next good
chances for snow across northern Wisconsin, and rain and snow to
the south.
