Forecast for Western/Northwestern WI
Forecast problems…..Really not to many….Rain for the weekend still on track with some snow for Sunday…Problems show up next weekend more on that later….
*** SHORT TERM/ MIDDLE TERM FORECAST DISCUSSION***
A weak cold front is slowly working through MN about all this will do is cause a few more clouds tonight, along with winds switching to the North then Northeast…..a 996 low pressure will track toward s Southwest MN then up to head of Lake Superior then it will slowly weaken to around 1000 as it work North of Lake Superior, this will keep the FA in the warm sector for Saturday…Showers and thunderstorms will become likely Saturday afternoon…Temps will be in the middle 50s, thought about go higher, however with the cloud cover forecasted to be in place feel temps won’t get out of control….Winds are forecasted to pick up to around 10 to 15 MPH…..Will keep showers and thunderstorms going through much of the evening, however will end thunderstorms after 1 AM…..Sunday looks to be cooler with falling temps…..Any rain showers left will chance over to all light snow by the late morning or early afternoon…..The rest of this period will star colder temps with mostly cloudy skies with a few days under partly cloudy skies…..No big storms through Thursday of next week…Map below shows the track of the low pressure through the weekend.

***LONG TERM FORECAST FRIDAY THE 16TH THROUGH SATURDAY THE 24***
We will be watching a storm system forming over the TX/OK pan handle..This is forecasted to track toward the Northeast to around the Northeast NE by the 17th then just North of Eau Claire WI later on the 17th.This is going to put the FA under rain in my Southern Counties/ A mixture of rain and snow through my Central areas with all snow in my Northern areas….A cold front will blast through and chance the mixture/rain to all light snow except in my far Southern areas Sat 17 night..Thinking my Southern areas will remain all rain, by time the colder air makes it down there the moisture will have push well Northeast by then…Sunday 18 Monday the 18th looks to be dry….The 20th early morning hours of the 21 snow in my central and Northern areas with rain in my Southern areas maybe some flurries down there before ending… The 22 through look to be dry…..
Temps will be warmer in my Southern areas and colder in my Northern areas….This is highly dependant on if we get a good snow cover in my Northern areas….
