From sunny skies to flurries in 48 hours for WisconsinWisconsin Weather
-- Record-high temperatures from Saturday are already a distant memory this morning.
Record-high temperatures from Saturday are already a distant memory this morning. It was 19 degrees at seven o’clock in Eau Claire and four other places in northern Wisconsin. And it was in the 20’s everywhere else except for Sheboygan and a couple of other southeast Wisconsin spots where the mercury hit 30. A low pressure system arrived early yesterday, which brought heavy rains and winds to parts of the Badger State. Gusts hit 49-miles-an-hour at Ashland, while parts of southwest Wisconsin got soaked by more than an inch of rain. Readstown in Vernon County had almost an-inch-and-a-half. Those rains washed away mild temperatures which helped lots of folks enjoy the outdoors on Saturday. Eau Claire broke a 103-year-old record with a high of 67. Oshkosh had 66, Milwaukee 65, and Green Bay 64 – all of which tied previous records. Today, scattered snow showers and flurries are predicted across Wisconsin. Skies are supposed to clear up tonight, with lows falling to the teens in most places. The National Weather Service says high pressure will then settle in – and it will be dry and increasing warmer as the week goes on. The mercury could reach 50 again by Friday.
