Wisconsin Weather Update for May 13, 2013.

By: HaleStorm , 12:51 PM GMT on May 13, 2013

Cold morning sunshine. Clouds, isolated showers later. Warmer tomorrow.
We are just starting to recover from either a Frost Advisory or a Freeze Warning last night, depending on where you live, and you can really feel the chill in the air this morning. Thankfully this cold May weather is about to end, and not because it’s changing to June. A southerly wind will soon greet us ahead of a storm system to our northwest, and this will start bringing warmer air into the region tonight, tomorrow, and lingering through the rest of the week. Minneapolis could hit 90 tomorrow, but we’re probably looking at temps in the 70s to approaching 80. We may see some isolated showers or storms tonight and tomorrow, but with mild air imminent, I’ll take it! Just don’t look at this weekend’s forecast.
