Break from the rain on Thursday at least

Rainfall totals in the region since yesterday have been generally from .25 to 1.5 inches, with the heaviest south and east of Marathon County. The slow moving weather system which has been bringing the wet conditions will move away this evening. As such, any showers will end with clearing skies Wednesday night. Temperatures will be quite cool, dipping down to the mid 30s north to low 40s south. We can’t rule out some patchy light frost in a few low-lying rural spots. Otherwise north winds around 10 mph will become light northwest later Wednesday night. Thursday should be sunny to partly cloudy and a bit breezy as highs reach the upper 60s to near 70. Winds will be from the northwest at 10-18 mph.

The next front will move in from the Northern Plains Friday bringing the clouds back along with some scattered showers and thunderstorms. Lows will be in the upper 40s with highs in the low 70s. That system could still produce some rain for the first half of Saturday, especially over the southern half of Wisconsin. There might be some breaks of sunshine later, especially in the north. Lows will be in the upper 50s with highs in the low 70s.

Sunday looks variably cloudy with a 30% chance of scattered showers. It will still be a bit cooler than normal with lows around 51 and highs near 71 degrees.

Early next week should be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s Monday to the upper 70s Tuesday. We expect a push of warmer and more humid air to work in by next Wednesday. Temperatures could top out around 80 degrees with a chance of some thunderstorms.
