From Storm Team 5…
Mostly cloudy skies give way to a bit of filtered sunshine as we progress through the afternoon and early evening hours today. Highs today, though a bit milder than yesterday, remain on the chilly side in the upper 30’s. Northwest to west winds will be light at between 5-10 mph.
Skies go mostly clear tonight and lows drop into the low 20’s by daybreak Tuesday.
Tomorrow we look for a mixture of sun and clouds and readings in the lower 40’s, and can’t rule out a spotty shower or flurry in northern sections come the late evening hours.
Wednesday brings some filtered or dimmed sun as our next system approaches from the west. Southwest winds go breezy and help send numbers into at least the lower 50’s. A good chance for rain showers arrives during the mid-late evening period.
Activity ends in the early morning hours of Thursday. Partly cloudy skies on Thursday accompany highs into the upper 50’s to near 60 degrees. A cold front slides southward across the heart of the viewing area late Thursday into the first half of Friday as a weather disturbance approaches from the west.
Showers and even a few thundershowers will be possible on Friday with the best chance for widespread rain coming in during the afternoon as the best upper-level forcing will be moving into the Badger state at that time. Temps on Friday will be much cooler in the lower 40’s. Winds are to be quite strong and it will certainly be feeling winter-like once again.
Rain may shift over to a wintry mixture or even snow showers on Saturday as readings stay well below normal in the middle 30’s. Windy conditions will be with us on the first half of our weekend. The best chance for an accumulation of snow will be in locations well to the north and west. A few snow showers may linger into Sunday as temperatures again only make it into the middle 30’s.
