The weather will be a bit gloomy for today but some nicer Fall weather is on the way. Temperatures should rise above normal late this week and over the weekend.
A weak low pressure system moving through Wisconsin today will produce some scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms through around midday. During the afternoon many areas will dry up with the shower activity focusing more on the Northwoods, north of Marathon county. As the storm pulls away this evening a few more shower could develop across more of the area once again. With the clouds and rain, high temperatures will not rise too far, staying mainly in the 40s. However, south of Marathon county, there could be some 50s this afternoon. Winds will be out of the southeast around 5 to 10 mph, shifting to the northwest this evening.
The northwest wind will be a bit gusty on Wednesday and this will help to keep temperatures cool. With more clouds than sun tomorrow, high temps will remain in the 40s. More sun should develop on Thursday and this will help boost high temps into the low 50s. The wind will be lighter on Thursday as well. A south wind will develop on Friday and this will raise the temperatures even more. Even with increasing clouds Friday afternoon, highs should still reach the upper 50s.
A weak trough of low pressure sliding through Northcentral Wisconsin Friday night could produce a few light showers and some of that wet weather might linger into Saturday morning for areas south and east of Wausau, otherwise the weather is looking pretty good for the weekend. We should see a bit more sun by Saturday afternoon with highs in the low 60s. On Sunday we will start out with some sun, then see increasing clouds with highs around 60.
A stronger storm system could develop across the middle of the nation on Monday and this could bring some heavier rain to our area. It will also likely drag some cool air in from Canada. Temperatures might only be in the 40s once again for the middle of next week.
Have a super Tuesday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 15-October-2019
