Wisconsin Weather Update for October 1, 2012.

By: HaleStorm , 12:49 PM GMT on October 01, 2012

Another dry week. Mild through mid-week, then much colder by Thursday night.
There’s not a whole lot to talk about in the short-term forecast, as the current area of low pressure moving across the U.S. is well south of us, in Mississippi and Alabama. We will just have to settle for more mild air, highs near 70, and a mix of sunshine and clouds.

Of much greater interest to us is a strong area of low pressure that is expected to move through on Thursday. Other than an isolated rain shower, most of the rain may miss us to the north, but this thing is going to bring significantly colder air into the upper Midwest. High temperatures will struggle to get much past 50 starting on Friday. Enjoy the first half of the week though!
