First Alert Weather: Suntabulous and warming up for the start of the weekend
Some patchy areas of fog are still possible Friday and Saturday mornings.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Plenty of cloud cover continues across central Wisconsin for Thanksgiving Evening, as temps will be slow to fall by early Friday morning. Overall, temps ranged from the upper 30s in the Northwoods Thanksgiving afternoon, to temps nearing 50° in Shawano and Waupaca Counties.
The cloud cover will begin to break up throughout the morning hours Friday, with plenty of suntabulous weather returning for Black Friday. High temperatures will return to the lower 40s for most areas, with a slight breeze kicking in for the afternoon. Expect breezy and warmer conditions to continue into the first day of the weekend, with plenty of 50s on the way for temps across central Wisconsin by Saturday afternoon.
Cold air quickly returns for the end of the weekend as a cold front approaches from the northwest and a storm system pushes into southern Wisconsin by Sunday morning. Light snow showers will develop and push into central Wisconsin by late morning Sunday, with very little accumulation expected in central Wisconsin. If you are traveling to/from southern Wisconsin (Madison or Milwaukee), there will be some snow accumulation before 10 a.m. Sunday morning, with snow showers mixing over to rain showers by the afternoon. High temps will primarily be in the middle 30s for Sunday.
Looking ahead to next week as you make your way back to work, Mother Nature greets us with falling temperatures and a possible snow system Tuesday and Wednesday. We will keep an eye on this forecast in the coming days and monitor it for a possible First Alert Weather Day, should it become a heavier snow producer and/or include a significant chance for some icing to occur Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.
