The mild weather continued today, as lows ranged from the mid 30s to around 40, and afternoon highs from the mid 40s to mid 50s. Fog was dense throughout the area during the morning, then became more scattered during the afternoon and evening. Scattered showers and a few T-storms occurred as well throughout the day.
The low pressure system responsible for the milder but damp weather will be moving through the western part of Wisconsin this evening, dragging a cold front through the state later in the evening and during the night. Breezy northwest winds will develop and bring much cooler air back to the area. Scattered rain showers will change to snow showers during the night but little accumulation is expected. There will be a chance of snow showers and flurries Friday, with accumulations of around an inch possible far-north. The cooler conditions will continue Friday and Saturday, followed by a trend toward slightly warmer than average weather next week.
A Flood Advisory will continue until midnight tonight for southern Forest and Langlade, Marathon, Shawano, Menominee, Wood, Portage, Waupaca, and Waushara Counties. Current and recent rainfall along with snow melt will lead to urban and small stream flooding.
A Flood Watch remains in effect into the morning Friday for most of central and northern Wisconsin.
There will be a chance of snow showers across the northern part of the area Sunday, followed by a chance of some light rain and snow throughout the area Tuesday. Otherwise quiet weather is expected next week.
