Where’s the rain?

Central and southern Wisconsin just missed out on a nice soaking rain yesterday afternoon as a blob of rain moved across northern Wisconsin. All we got here were clouds. Well the good news is that there’s plenty more chances for rain over the next week, thanks to a nearly-stationary area of low pressure in Manitoba, Canada, but the bad news is that the chances of rain each day aren’t exactly great.  Warmer air moves back into the region with highs in the 80s expected through the weekend and most of next week. A few 90s may even crop up in a few spots over the next week as well.
