440 AM CDT Fri Oct 14 2016
High pressure brought quiet weather to Wisconsin on Thursday. The
day started out chilly with many places getting frost. Skies became
sunny across most of the state by the afternoon. High temperatures
were in the mid 40s to mid 50s.
Skies were mostly clear across Wisconsin overnight with high
pressure over the Great Lakes region. Light winds and clear skies
led to cold temperatures for the east half of the state, with lows
around 30 in the northeast and lower to mid 30s southeast. Warmer
air spread into the west half overnight, so low temperatures were in
the upper 30s.
Low pressure approaching from the plains will usher warmer air into
Wisconsin today on increasing southerly winds. We can expect mostly
sunny skies until later in the afternoon. High temperatures will
range from the upper 50s north to the mid 60s near the Minnesota and
Look for drizzle to develop in western Wisconsin overnight due to
increasing low level moisture. Then low pressure will bring a round
of showers and thunderstorms to much of the state Saturday afternoon
and evening along a cold front.
That cold front will stall in Illinois Sunday morning and then make
its way back north through Wisconsin Sunday afternoon and night as a
warm front. Warm and humid conditions will linger across at least
the south half of Wisconsin through Monday. Showers and
thunderstorms are likely across much of the state Sunday night and
across the north Monday night. Expect colder temperatures to arrive
by mid week.
