Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
1015 AM CDT Thu Apr 19 2018


A band of moderate to heavy snow moved east southeast across the
southern portions of Wisconsin on Wednesday into Wednesday night.
There was some sleet at the onset, with a transition to snow as
the afternoon went on. Some thunder was observed with the heavy
snow band.

Snowfall totals of 5 to 9 inches were observed across areas south
of La Crosse, east southeast through the Wisconsin Dells, Madison
and into Beaver Dam. Lower amounts were observed elsewhere across
southern Wisconsin. The snow caused travel impacts during the
afternoon and evening on Wednesday, including the evening commute.

The rest of the state saw cloudy skies. Highs were in the middle
30s in southern Wisconsin, to the lower 40s to the north. Lows
Wednesday night were in the teens in northern Wisconsin, to the
upper 20s to around 30 in southern Wisconsin.


High pressure is expected to slowly move east across the region today
into Saturday, then east of the region later this weekend into
early next week. The high will bring a stretch of dry conditions
to Wisconsin.

Temperatures will be on a gradual warming trend, with more normal
temperatures expected by Sunday into early next week. Highs today
will be in the 40s across most of Wisconsin, with lows tonight in
the upper teens in north central Wisconsin, to the 20s elsewhere.
