Bowling Championship
I'm happy to report this morning that our team bowled excellent last night at Village Lanes in Little Chute and we won the league championship! Winning was based on total pins only, not winning 2 of 3 games like you might expect. We won the first game by almost 100 pins and the second game by almost 50, but then we started to get some opens and the other team went a little strike happy, and they won the third game by 110, but the difference was too great to make up. So next week at the league banquet, we each will get a trophy, we'll get to sit at the head table, and we'll get a little bit more prize money. My games last night were 202, 218 and a 183, with only three opens the whole night (2 splits and one chop) and I ended the season with a 202 average, my best ever.

Southern Wisconsin:
Look for scattered flurries...along and southeast of a Sheboygan...Juneau to Madison line...to end from northwest to southeast through the morning hours. Clouds will clear locations south of this line by 8 am. Expect northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph...with gusts to 30 mph...and temperatures in the lower to middle 20s through 8 am. Wind chill readings in the single digits and teens will greet morning commuters...so bundle up.

Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 6am with clouds east, a clear sky west, and a few light snow showers north, temps are in the upper teens north, lower 20s central and the low to mid- 20s south. Wind chill readings are in the single digits above zero!

Synopsis: We saw a few very brief glimpses of blue sky yesterday, but otherwise clouds, flurries and wind was the main weather story for most of Wisconsin. The slow-moving low that brought us all that stuff is over New England now, but the wind circulation behind the low is still pretty strong so look for more cold northerly winds but hopefully a bit more sunshine as well.

Today: Becoming partly cloudy, but still windy and cold. Highs upper 20s north, 32 central, and mid- 30s south.

Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy, breezy, lows upper teens central and south, near 10 above zero north.

Tomorrow: Becoming cloudy from northeast to southwest as more moisture from that same low pressure system floats back over Wisconsin. Light snow showers are possible later in the day. Still windy and cold, too, with highs only in the mid- 20s north, near 30 central, and lower 30s south. Chance of measurable snow 30%.

Saturday: Cloudy, breezy and still cold with light snow showers or flurries. Highs 31-36. Chance of measurable snow 30%.
Sunday: Partly sunny and warmer, highs 37-42.
Next Weeks Outlook: Maybe some light rain or snow Monday night and into Tuesday, otherwise a mostly dry but still fairly cold week can be expected. Highs look to be mostly in the 40s. The normal high for this date is the upper 40s north, 50 central and the lower 50s south.

Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Partly sunny, highs upper 80s.

Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Sunshine, cooler, highs upper 60s.

Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: Partly cloudy, highs near 70.
... Record daily maximum rainfall set at Galveston yesterday...
A record rainfall of 1.70 inches was set at Galveston yesterday
Wednesday April 4th. This breaks the old record of 0.96 set in 1922.

Today in Evansville, Indiana: Sunshine, highs upper 40s.
Freeze warning in effect until 9 am CDT this morning...
Freeze warning in effect from midnight tonight to 9 am CDT Friday...
Freeze watch in effect from late Friday night through Saturday morning...
The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a freeze
warning... which is in effect from midnight tonight to 9 am CDT
Friday. A freeze watch has also been issued. This freeze watch is
in effect from late Friday night through Saturday morning. A large
area of Canadian high pressure will continue to draw unseasonably
cold air into the region over the next few days. Low temperatures
tonight are forecast to range from the mid 20s to near 30 degrees.

Low temperatures Saturday morning are forecast to be even
colder... ranging from near 20 to the mid 20s.

Considering we are about three weeks ahead of schedule with
respect to green up across the area... sub freezing temperatures
will make for harsh and dangerous conditions for plants and
tender vegetation.

Sub freezing temperatures at night can kill crops and other
sensitive vegetation. Potted plants normally left outdoors should
be covered or brought inside away from the cold.

A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or
highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other
sensitive vegetation.

A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible.
These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
