Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
505 PM CDT Fri Jul 14 2017


Cloudy to mostly cloudy conditions prevailed for most of the day
Thursday with a light west breeze that became northerly farther
south through the day. These conditions helped make for quite the
temperature gradient across the state. Clouds and a north wind
off of Lake Superior kept temperatures in the lower 50s across
far northern Wisconsin while a west breeze and peeks of sun across
the southern portion of the state allowed temperatures to nudge
into the lower 80s. A little light rain accompanied the cooler
temperatures across northern and northeastern Wisconsin yesterday
making for a very non-summer-like day. Lows ranged from the upper
40s across the north to pockets of lower 60s across portions of
the southern half of the state though most locations remained in
the 50s overnight.


Today was the case of clouds or no clouds. Cloudy to mostly
cloudy conditions was the rule across the southern portion of
Wisconsin while northern Wisconsin has basked in sunshine all day.
The clearing line has slowly worked south through the day but
still stretched roughly from Eau Claire to Green bay as of late
this afternoon. In the sun, high temperatures have climbed into
the 70s but have struggled to reach 70 under the clouds. The
clouds are expected to dissipate this evening. Lows should once
again be in the 50s for most locations but just like last night
there may be areas of upper 40s across northern Wisconsin and
pockets of lower 60s in the south. Saturday should be a warm day
with widespread 80s across the state. There may even be a few
lower 90s across west central Wisconsin. A cold front is forecast
to drop through the state Saturday afternoon and evening.
Thunderstorms are expected to develop along the front during the
afternoon. Some of the storms could become severe with large hail
and strong winds being the primary threats. This does not appear
to be a heavy rain event.
