...Windy and Colder Today...

.DISCUSSION...
Winds will be gusty out of the northwest today behind a strong
cold front. Plan on wind speeds of 20-30 mph with gusts 30-40 mph,
highest across bluff top areas and open windprone areas. A few
flurries may also be seen across north central Wisconsin.
Colder/drier/quiet weather will be in store for Wednesday with
warming taking place Thanksgiving day and especially on Friday.
Look for gusty southwest winds Friday becoming northwest by
evening along with a chance of rain. The weekend is looking quiet
and slightly cooler than normal as high pressure dominates the
Upper Mississippi River Valley Region.
