The frequent cloudy, cool, and damp days over the past few months or two certainly has many of you wondering if it will ever really get to be summer this year. Perhaps the outlook for the week ahead will offer some hope.
There was a wedge of sunshine and warmer conditions north of Marathon County Sunday, otherwise clouds were dominating. Scattered light rain was reported mainly south and east of Wausau through midday. It looks tranquil Sunday evening into midday Monday. Lows will reach the mid to upper 40s in central Wisconsin where the thicker clouds are to the upper 30s in the Northwoods. High temperatures should climb to the low 70s Monday. The wind will be light and variable.
Tuesday should again be partly to mostly cloudy. A weak disturbance is projected in the region, so a few spotty showers are possible. Lows will be around 53 with highs around 74. Little changes for Wednesday. It looks partly sunny with a slight chance of a shower. Highs should reach the low 70s.
At this point Thursday is shaping up nice with partly cloudy skies and highs around 74. However, the dry weather may not last long. More humid air will be pushing in toward Friday and Saturday. This coupled with some fronts nearby spells a good chance of showers and thunderstorms at times especially late Friday and Saturday. Some could be on the heavier side. Temperatures will reach the upper 50s at night and mid 70s during the day.
That system should move away next Sunday but a small chance of a shower lingers. Otherwise we expect partly sunny conditions with highs around 77 degrees.
Have a nice rest of your Sunday! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 3:15 p.m., 16-June 2019
