Wisconsin Weather Update for May 7, 2012.

By: HaleStorm , 12:31 PM GMT on May 07, 2012

Enough with the rain already!

Thankfully we only have a couple instances of rain in the forecast, and those look minor at best. A few sprinkles this morning should turn into scattered sunshine by this afternoon. A weak disturbance may develop a few thundershowers tomorrow afternoon and evening, and we may see a shower or two on Friday, but otherwise it looks like our saturated ground may have a few days to recover from all the flooding last week. Temperatures look seasonable with highs generally in the 60s expected.
