Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1119 AM CDT Thu Aug 17 2017


Yesterday was another warm day across the state with the exception
of locations in far northern Wisconsin near Lake Superior where
temperatures were limited to the middle 60s. Elsewhere, temperatures
rose into the 70s and 80s. Widespread rain fell across Wisconsin
over the past 24 hours though some locations picked up more than
others like west central and south central Wisconsin where localized
amounts of 2 to 4 inches fell. One band of the heaviest rain stretched
from north central Rock County northeast into southeastern Dodge County.
Overnight lows were generally in the 50s and 60s with a few pockets
of upper 40s across north central and northeastern Wisconsin.


There will be plenty of clouds today though there will also be a
few peaks of sun, especially across eastern and southern Wisconsin.
Scattered showers are in the forecast today. Isolated showers have
have already begun to develop this morning across eastern and
southern Wisconsin with more persistent rain moving into northwestern
Wisconsin. This persistent rain will move across northern Wisconsin
through the day. The more showery precipitation should peak in
coverage and intensity during the middle to late afternoon and
then diminish this evening. There is also a small chance for an
isolated thunderstorm. The clouds and rain should limit high
temperatures to the upper 60s and 70s for most locations with a
few lower 80s possible in the far southeastern portion of the
state. Lows tonight are expected to drop into the 50s and 60s with
rain exiting northeastern Wisconsin. Highs on Friday are forecast
to top out in the 70s with the next chance for rain approaching
western Wisconsin during the afternoon.
