Rain chances increasing later today

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The warm weather is hanging on for a little while longer. Temperatures will not cool down too much until Friday and even then will remain above normal. Conditions will be mild but you might get wet at times.

Today: Variable clouds and still warm with a few spotty showers or t-storms possible by late afternoon.

High: 75 Wind: SE 10-20

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers.

Low: 53 Wind: SE around 10

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, mild, and breezy, with a few showers at times.

High: 66 Wind: SE 10-20

Look for a few breaks of sun at times today with a southeast wind around 10 to 20 mph. Scattered showers and isolated storms should hold off until late afternoon and this will allow high temps to rise once again up into the 70s.

The same weather system that was responsible for the showers and storms late yesterday and once again late today will slowly move over Wisconsin from Thursday through Saturday. This means more clouds and scattered showers. Thursday and Friday will be the days that seem the most damp although it will not be raining all the time. The showers should become more sparse on Saturday. High temps will still be in the 60s on Thursday, then top out in the upper 50s on Friday and in the mid to upper 50s on Saturday.

Another low pressure system will try to move up from the south into Wisconsin on Sunday. As of now, it looks like it will miss most of the area but there is at least a 30 percent chance of rain to the southeast of Marathon county.

Early next week a cooler upper level trough of low pressure will settle over the northern part of the country and this could bring a few showers to our area once again. Temperatures could be cool enough for a few flakes of snow Monday night or Tuesday. Highs on Tuesday might only reach the upper 40s.

Have an fine Wednesday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 7-April-2021

On this date in weather history: 1857 - A late season freeze brought snow to every state in the Union. Even as far south as Houston TX the mercury plunged to 21 degrees. (David Ludlum)
