Wisconsin Weather Update

Wisconsin Weather Update for June 24, 2013.

By: HaleStorm, 12:50 PM GMT on June 24, 2013

Scattered storms (mostly south) today. Soaking rain with possible severe storms tomorrow.
Warm and humid conditions look to persist across Wisconsin over the next few days with highs in the 80s and dew points in the 65-70 degree range. Moisture ahead of a warm front may develop scattered thunderstorms today across southern Wisconsin, and these storms should be making their way north across the rest of Wisconsin by this evening and tonight. Tomorrow and Wednesday look like washouts with lots of soaking rain and thunderstorms as the primary low pressure system slowly moves through. The SPC has put Wisconsin under the slight risk category for severe weather tomorrow as well (see link below).

Wisconsin Weather Update for June 17, 2013.

By: HaleStorm, 1:04 PM GMT on June 17, 2013

Morning sunshine, then scattered storms. Warm again today, cooler tomorrow.
A small disturbance in the atmosphere is working its way across Wisconsin this morning. While it shouldn’t be significant enough to cause severe weather in the area, it may be annoying enough where a few scattered showers and storms develop this afternoon and evening because of it. Behind this disturbance and its mini-cold front, cooler air arrives tomorrow and Wednesday before heating up again this weekend.

Weather Map of the Day
This 9-panel temperature map shows cooler air coming in tomorrow and Wednesday, with much warmer temperatures possible this weekend, presuming there’s enough breaks in the rain to allow the surface to absorb all this energy.

Wisconsin Weather Update for June 10, 2013.

By: HaleStorm, 1:12 PM GMT on June 10, 2013

Partly sunny and pleasant today. Storms develop late tomorrow and Wednesday.
Today and tomorrow are generally looking like pretty nice days in Wisconsin. Scattered showers associated with a small area of low pressure in northern Illinois are now affecting Michigan, Indiana, and other places east of here. As for here, along with the sun/cloud mix and warm temperatures generally comes with the isolated chance of late-afternoon or evening showers, but don’t sweat it. I mean that too - dew points are not expected to break 60 all week, so you’ll need to travel south of the border if you want uncomfortable humidity. And who wants that?

Wisconsin Weather Update for June 3, 2013.

By: HaleStorm, 12:33 PM GMT on June 03, 2013

Sunshine and pleasantly cool today, showers return late tomorrow.
A nice area of high pressure is centered in southern Manitoba, Canada this morning, and stretching through the western Great Lakes. Look for a nice day today with lots of sunshine and cool temperatures in the 60s. A new area of low pressure may bring rain back to Wisconsin by late tomorrow and linger through Wednesday.
