Wisconsin Weather Update for October 29, 2012.

By: HaleStorm , 12:41 PM GMT on October 29, 2012

Sunshine and cool today, windy tomorrow thanks to Hurricane Sandy.
With all the weather wackiness happening on the east coast this week, it seems almost weird that the biggest weather story around here will just be some gusty winds tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night. Okay, there’s a small chance eastern Wisconsin sees some drizzle and/or flurries tomorrow and Wednesday, but it looks like almost all of the precip from Hurricane Sandy is going to remain east of Lake Michigan. High temps will likely remain in the 40s, which is slightly below normal.
