This is Lisa with our weekend and baby update and I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Our weekend was pretty quiet as we spent most of our time at home, but we did do something fun on Tuesday evening. We went with our friends Jason and Nicole to see the Blue Man Group show "How to be a Megastar Tour 2.0" in Green Bay. It was a great show and we all really enjoyed it. We got to buy our seats before they went on sale to the general public, so we had eighth row center. Steve and I have seen the Blue Man Group twice before: once in Las Vegas and again in Chicago, but this show was a whole different experience with less funny skits and more great music. Friday evening, we had our private ballroom dance lesson on the Cha-Cha and Waltz. Saturday, I had my morning water exercise class, then we spent the day at home. Sunday, we were greeters and Steve was a reader at church. After church we had a carryout lunch from the new Chicago UNO's restaurant at our house with our friends Clair and Becky, who were in town from Rhinelander.
Not too much is new with Bryce except that now when he's telling someone good bye, instead of just waving, he'll wave and say "bye bye." He'll also go get his shoes and coat when he wants to let us know that he wants to go outside and play. Steve has been teaching him how to throw a mini-football for some time now, but this weekend he taught Bryce how to catch as well. He will hold his hands out and as long as Steve throws the ball into his hands, he'll catch it and be very proud of himself for doing so. Well that wraps up our update, have a great week.
Today’s forecast grade: B
Important Weather Statement: (Courtesy of the National Weather Service)
...Return of cold weather...
Strong northwest winds will develop behind a low pressure system
Tuesday night. These strong winds will pull unseasonably cold air
across southern Wisconsin. Daytime temperatures on Wednesday will
remain in the 30s...with wind chills in the teens to lower 20s.
Some light snow may accompany the surge of colder air Tuesday
night with light accumulations possible.
Temperatures will remain well below normal through the end of the
week with a slight modification expected over the weekend. A more
noticeable warm up is expected early next week.
Now: At 7am with cloudy and breezy conditions, temps are in the mid- 30s north, near 40 central and the lower 40s south.
Synopsis: Brewers or Dodgers? Ohio State or Florida? I'm hoping for the former in both cases, but today will feel about 20-degrees warmer than Opening Day usually feels (but don't worry, typical Opening Day weather will be here by Wednesday). Rain will begin developing this evening ahead of a strengthening low pressure system in the Rocky Mountains. Severe weather is not anticipated with this round of storms, but then again, the Storm Prediction Center said that about this weekend's storms and Madison was briefly under a Tornado Warning Saturday evening. A big trough in the upper-air jet stream will move in behind the low, making the rest of the week feel more like early December than early April...except without all the pretty outdoor lights to look at.
Today: Clouds for now, hopefully a few breaks of sunshine later this morning before things cloud up again late in the day. Breezy, highs upper 40s north, 54 central, and upper 50s south.
Tonight: Cloudy and breezy with showers and thunderstorms likely. Lows near 30 north, upper 30s central, and lower 40s south. Chance of rain 80%.
Tomorrow: Cloudy and breezy with more scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rain could change over to light snow north later in the day. Highs near 40 north, upper 40s central, and mid- 50s south. Chance of precip 70%.
Tomorrow Night: I don't normally include tomorrow night's forecast so you're probably already on edge for what I'm about to say. Windy and colder with rain changing over to snow. 3-5" of snow accumulation is possible north, 1-2" central, and less than 1" south. Lows upper 20s with wind chills in the teens. Don't tell me you already put away your shovel and ice scrapers for the season! You should know better than that! Chance of precip 60%.
Wednesday: Cloudy, breezy and much colder with light snow showers or flurries. Highs 35-40. Chance of snow 30%.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy and cold with flurries, highs 36-41.
Friday: Mostly cloudy and colder yet with flurries, highs 32-37.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with more cold and flurries, highs 36-41.
Sunday: Partly sunny, a little warmer, highs 40-45.
Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Sunshine, highs mid- 80s.
Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Partly cloudy, highs mid- 70s.
Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: Scattered showers and thunderstorms developing, highs lower 80s.
Today in Evansville, Indiana: Sunshine, highs upper 70s.
