Good Good Friday morning!
This will be a little bit shorter update compared to normal as numerous people on the mailing list aren't at work today, plus the fact that we're still in a rather boring weather cycle. :) A storm system moving across the central United States should miss Wisconsin to the south, and the next storm of any moderate interest doesn't arrive until Monday. So enjoy the continued seasonable weekend weather!
