Wednesday could feature record-setting highs in North Central Wisconsin. Morning fog, then mostly cloudy. Low pressure and a cold front will track toward the Badger State as the day wears on. In contrast to the last weather maker, this one will be a rain producer. Although there will be melting of the snowpack in the next few days, the rain associated with this storm system is not expected to cause flooding concerns. The rain showers will be around from Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. Chillier air will follow in the passing of the cold front on Thursday, with some snow showers in the morning. More notable on Thursday will be the brisk winds and temperatures falling from the 30s into the 20s as the day goes on.

Some wet weather on the way for Wednesday afternoon and night.
