Wisconsin Weather Update for April 9, 2012.

By: HaleStorm , 12:11 PM GMT on April 09, 2012

Breezy, cool and dry for a few days, then warmer and rainy for a few days.

The upper-air weather systems are going to stay mostly stationary for the next couple of days, with low pressure to our northeast, high pressure to our northwest, and another developing area of low pressure off the Pacific coast. This means we should see lots of sunshine through mid-week, but unfortunately a northwesterly wind is going to keep us cooler as well. That changes starting late on Thursday, as that low pressure system finally heads our way and develops showers with scattered thunderstorms through much of the weekend. So enjoy the next few days, but just remember your jacket.
