We had a nice break from the clouds and rain this afternoon, and once the clouds broke apart temperatures quickly jumped into the mid 70s to low 80s. A cold front will move through the area this evening and stall out in southern Wisconsin Wednesday and Thursday. Clouds will increase tonight as a complex of rain and storms rides north of the front, making it’s way into central Wisconsin Wednesday morning. Several rounds of rain are expected throughout Wednesday and Thursday, but there will be a few breaks at times. A few stronger storms could have gusty winds in the southern part of the area Wednesday, but the bigger concern through Thursday night will be flooding. 1-2” of rain fell last night across central Wisconsin, and an additional 2-4” will be possible through Friday morning. A cold front will move through the area Thursday evening and night, which could trigger a few stronger storms in the southern part of the area again, but heavy rain will continue to be a problem. Places that see repeated storms could experience flash flooding. Highs will be in the 60s.
The cold front will exit the area early Friday morning, but with the low pressure system still overhead a few scattered showers will be possible in the Northwoods. Heavy rain is not expected. Otherwise it will be windy with gusts up to 35 mph and highs in the low to mid 60s.
Warmer and generally drier weather will move in for the weekend. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are expected Saturday with a chance for scattered showers and isolated storms in the evening and overnight. Highs will reach either side of 70. Temps will warm into the mid to upper 70s on Sunday with partly cloudy skies. The warm weather will continue into next week as well with highs returning into the upper 70s to low 80s.
