225 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017
Portions of the state began the day with some fog and clouds which
quickly eroded. After that, it was yet another record setting day
across much of Wisconsin. Mostly clear skies and southerly winds
allowed temperatures to soar into the 50s in northern Wisconsin, and
into the 60s in southern Wisconsin.
Skies were partly cloudy across the Badgerland during the overnight
hours. Some fog developed near Lake Michigan and in the extreme
southeast. Temperatures dropped off into the 30s to low 40s in the
northwest with mainly 40s elsewhere.
Record warmth will continue today especially over southern Wisconsin
where temperatures will approach 70 degrees. A strong low pressure
area will then affect Wisconsin for Thursday night through Saturday.
A heavy snow band is expected to set up over northwest and north
central Wisconsin with mixed precipitation over central Wisconsin
and mostly rain in the south. Colder and more seasonal temperatures
are then expected for the weekend.
