Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1140 AM CDT Thu Jul 13 2017


There were very varied conditions across the state yesterday due
to a cold front dividing the state between cooler conditions to
the north and warm, sticky sumer-like weather to the south.
Behind the front, winds were out of the north off of Lake Superior
and temperatures in extreme norther Wisconsin never made it out
of the 50s yesterday. Contrast to that with the conditions to the
south of the boundary where highs soared into the 80s with a few
90s across west central Wisconsin. Combine those temperatures with
dewpoints in the upper 60s and lower 70s made it feel like it was
well into the 90s. Additional showers and thunder storms
continued to impact the southern portion of the state and didn`t
move out of the far southeastern corner of Wisconsin until early
afternoon. After all was said and done, some locations received in
excess of 8 inches since Tuesday evening. The rain was not done
though. Scattered showers and thunderstorms developed along the
cold front during the late afternoon. This activity slowly worked
southeast through the evening and dissipated overnight. Lows were
as varied as the highs with upper 40s across northern Wisconsin
and upper 60s to near 70 across the south.


Today should be a much quieter day with high pressure in control.
The state will get a much needed break from the rainfall through
Friday. North winds will usher in a drier airmass with falling dew
points through the afternoon. Skies will remain cloudy to mostly
cloudy today which will help limit high temperatures to only 60
across the far north to near 80 across southern Wisconsin. Lows
are expected to drop into the upper 40s north to low 60s in the
southeastern corner of the state by Friday morning. Another dry
day is on tap for Friday with pleasant temperatures in the 70s
