Wisconsin Weather Update for May 12, 2008.

By: HaleStorm , 11:11 AM GMT on May 12, 2008

Good Monday morning!

Weather Synopsis
High pressure is controlling the weather across much of the central United States today, so look for a sunny, peaceful day across Wisconsin with slightly below-normal temperatures similar to yesterday. Low pressure building in the Rocky Mountains could give us some showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and evening with more showers on the way just in time for the weekend.
