Wisconsin Weather Update for October 12, 2010.

By: HaleStorm , 12:37 PM GMT on October 12, 2010

Good Tuesday morning!



Wisconsin Forecast Synopsis

Yesterday was quite a day of temperature contrasts around the state
with highs in the lower 60s in east-central Wisconsin, 70s in western
Wisconsin, and near 80 in southern Wisconsin. A small area of low
pressure in Missouri may push just enough clouds and moisture into
Wisconsin today to develop a few light rain showers or sprinkles, but
otherwise our Indian Summer stretch of mild weather will continue
today.




Some cooler air will push into the state tomorrow as our upper-air jet
stream ridge turns into a trough that will bring cooler air into the
western Great Lakes region from Canada.  Today may be our last day of
high temperatures near or above 70. However, with our average high
temperature in the upper 50s (east-central) / near 60 (southern WI),
we're still going to remain a little above normal through the weekend,
except for Friday when we'll be closer to our normal high temperature. Enjoy!



Oh, and if you want some good weather TV this
week, check out the Discovery Channel this Wednesday evening. The
MythBusters are testing tornado myths, and that's followed by the
season premiere of Storm Chasers, which is an awesome show to watch in
HD. =)
