Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1030 AM CDT Fri Aug 18 2017


High temperatures ranged from the lower to middle 60s in far
northwestern Wisconsin where persistent cloud cover and rain held
temperatures in check to the lower 80s across eastern and
southern Wisconsin which saw more sun. Rain moved into
northwestern Wisconsin from Minnesota through the morning and
persisted most of the day. Elsewhere, scattered showers developed
during the morning, peaked during the afternoon with a few
isolated thunderstorms and then diminished last evening. After all
was said and done, most locations saw at least a bit of rain with
amounts generally less than a quarter of an inch although there
were a few spots that escaped with nothing. Farther north in areas
that were affected by the persistent rainfall, amounts were
higher with some locations receiving more than an inch. Lows last
night dropped into the 50s across the north with 60s to the south.


Clouds should be variable today with a slow clearing trend across
eastern Wisconsin with additional clouds moving in quickly across
western Wisconsin associated with the next weather system. Clouds
may not clear completely out of the east before the next batch of
clouds moves in this afternoon. Highs today should be in the 70s
statewide. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are
forecast to slide across southern Wisconsin this evening and then
move east of the area overnight. Far southern Wisconsin near the
Illinois border has the best chance for seeing rainfall. Lows
tonight should be in the 50s. Saturday is expected to be a
beautiful summer day with dry conditions, plentiful sunshine and
highs near 80.
