WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
330 AM CDT SAT MAY 23 2015

.YESTERDAY...

PLEASANT CONDITIONS WERE PLENTIFUL ACROSS THE BADGERLAND FRIDAY AS
AN AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE SETTLED OVER THE REGION. SKIES WERE CLEAR
TO MOSTLY SUNNY ACROSS THE STATE FOR MUCH OF THE DAY. A HIGH-LEVEL
CLOUD DECK DID MOVE INTO THE REGION FROM THE SOUTH DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. TEMPERATURES WERE NEARLY AT SEASONAL
VALUES WITH MUCH OF WISCONSIN SEEING HIGHS IN THE UPPER 60S INTO THE
70S. TEMPERATURES WERE COOLER ALONG THE GREAT LAKES SHORELINES
THANKS TO LAKE BREEZES. WINDS WERE LIGHT AND VARIABLE ACROSS THE
STATE.

.OVERNIGHT...

HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GREAT LAKES ALLOWED FOR LIGHT WINDS AND A
QUIET WEATHER NIGHT ACROSS WISCONSIN. HIGH CLOUDS STREAMING INTO THE
REGION FROM LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING IN THE PLAINS KEPT TEMPERATURES
FROM DROPPING TOO MUCH IN SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN. LOWS THERE WERE
AROUND 50 OVERNIGHT. A LONGER PERIOD OF CLEAR SKIES IN NORTHEAST
WISCONSIN LED TO NEAR-FREEZING TEMPERATURES.

.FORECAST...

LOOK FOR ONE MORE DAY OF QUIET WEATHER ACROSS WISCONSIN AS HIGH
PRESSURE LINGERS OVER THE GREAT LAKES REGION. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL
BE IN THE 70S STATEWIDE UNDER MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES. LOWS TONIGHT WILL
GENERALLY BE IN THE 50S.

WARMER AIR AND MORE MOISTURE WILL BEGIN STREAMING INTO THE REGION
LATE TONIGHT THROUGH MEMORIAL DAY AS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING IN THE
HIGH PLAINS GRADUALLY LIFTS INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST. SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY AT TIMES SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT. THE
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LINGER OVER THE WISCONSIN AREA AND PRODUCE
SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING.
