First Alert Weather: Suntabulous weather returns Tuesday
Along with more wildfire smoke and haze from the fires across Canada.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Smokey and hazy conditions will return Tuesday, as temperatures continue to warm up back into the upper 70s and lower 80s across the region. Dry conditions will continue throughout the afternoon, so please limit any outdoor burning that you may have planned throughout the day.
A cold front will approach for Tuesday night and especially early Wednesday morning, with isolated showers and storms possible before midnight in the Northwoods, followed by a weak and broken line of showers that will pass through Central Wisconsin before daybreak Wednesday. Overall rain amounts will range well less than 0.25″, minus a few thundershowers that may develop.
In wake of the cold front, cooler air will usher in, dropping highs down to the mid-60s for the afternoon Wednesday. Despite morning rain chances, much of the day should end up dry featuring partly cloudy skies.
Heading into Thursday, low temperatures could try to drop into the upper 30s, which could pose a threat for some frost development Thursday morning. This will be dependent on how low morning temperatures drop. With that in mind, if you haven’t planted yet, could be a good idea to hold that off until after Thursday or cover your plants to prevent frost damage. Daytime highs remain near average in the mid to upper 60s.
Friday through Memorial Day Weekend looks to be a good one weather wise across central Wisconsin, as rain chances look very low during this time as warmer temps return early next week. With the lack of rainfall coming up in the next few weeks, please continue to limit any outdoor burning that you may have planned.
