WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
442 AM CDT SAT MAY 21 2016
High pressure once again was in control over the Great Lakes
region Friday, bringing partly to mostly sunny skies to Wisconsin.
A weak trough of low pressure south of the state brought the
thickest cloud cover to southern Wisconsin.
High temperatures were near seasonal normals in the southern part of
the state, with well above average temperatures in the north, thanks
to the more abundant sunshine. High temperatures were mainly in the
70s, with some upper 60s in the south. Winds were light and variable.
Mid and high level clouds associated with departing low pressure
lingered much of the night in southern and eastern portion of
Wisconsin. Otherwise, high pressure brought mostly clear skies to
the rest of the state. Winds were light overnight. Low
temperatures ranged from the upper 30s and low 40s north-
central, to the mid and upper 40s south.
High pressure will bring mostly sunny skies and above normal
temperatures this weekend.
The high will slide eastward early next week, allowing for a
return of precipitation chances. Multiple systems are forecast to
move through, bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms
through the week.
Temperatures are expected to remain mainly above normal next week.
