It sure was nice out today with those highs climbing into the 40s and the sunshine! Wednesday won’t be quite as nice with more cloud cover as a weak front moves through. It could generate a few light snow showers Wednesday morning, especially over the northern half of the News 9 area. Temperatures will drop to 29 tonight and climb to 42 Wednesday which is pretty close to normal. The wind will be form the west tonight at 5-10 mph then become west to northwest at 5-15 mph Wednesday.
Thursday looks partly cloudy and breezy. Lows should be in the mid to upper 20s with highs in the mid to upper 40s, so a few degrees warmer. Another cold front will slide through Thursday night. It should pass through mainly dry, but it will keep our temperatures a bit lower for Friday then we were thinking a few days ago. The lows Friday should be in the mid 20s with highs in the mid 40s. We still should have plenty of sunshine.
The warmest weather of this forecast will arrive Saturday. It looks very nice with sunny skies. Lows will be in the mid 20s with highs in the mid 50s. Sunday will still be relatively mild but clouds will increase as a low pressure system in the Plains draws closer. Lows will be around 33 with highs around the low 50s. There is a 30% chance of some light rain showers Sunday afternoon into the night.
Any light rain or snow showers in the region early Monday morning yet will move away quickly. Colder, drier air is now expected to move down into Wisconsin Monday. This should allow for decreasing clouds with lows in the 20s and highs in the upper 30s north to low 40s south. It definitely will feel chilly compared to the warmer weekend.
The middle of next week is shaping up pretty decent with plenty of sunshine and warming temperatures again. Highs should stay in the low 40s Tuesday, but then jump to the low 50s for Wednesday the 27th.
Have a good night! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 2:50 p.m., 19-March 2019
