Good Thursday morning!
Yesterday’s Wisconsin Weather Recap
What an outstanding day of weather! We had lots of sunshine and comfortable high temperatures in the mid- 70s.
Today’s Wisconsin Forecast Synopsis
A slow-moving area of high pressure currently stretching from Hudson Bay, Canada through the Ohio Valley promises more sunshine across most of the state today. A small disturbance is creating a few showers in far northern Wisconsin and western Lake Superior this morning, but all we might see around here is a few clouds. Warmer air is also beginning to move into the Midwest, so expect yesterday's highs in the mid- 70s to travel into the upper 70s to near 80 today, then in the 80s through our holiday weekend.
Today’s Forecast Grade: A-
Today: Mostly sunny in southern Wisconsin. A few clouds in east-central Wisconsin, but any rain should stay near Lake Superior. High temperatures a little warmer compared to yesterday, near 79.
