First Alert Weather: Brief cool down with small shower chances arriving Wednesday morning
Cold front may help alleviate some of the smoke and haze from skies over Wisconsin Wednesday
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - A relatively strong cold front, will work its way from north to south across Wisconsin during the early morning hours Wednesday, which will trigger some spotty light showers throughout the early to late morning hours. While the front will trigger widely scattered showers, there will be very little rainfall from it as temperatures drop from the 80s Tuesday, into the lower 60s by Wednesday afternoon.
There will be a handful of light showers and sprinkles possible throughout central Wisconsin from daybreak through the late morning hours, with any amount of rainfall, remaining well under 0.10″. For most locations, the few drops that fall, will be enough to kick up the dust a bit on vehicles throughout central Wisconsin.
It will be a cold start to Thursday, with most locations starting out in the middle 30s, which could pose a threat for some frost development Thursday morning. The amount of cloud cover that does or does not stay over central Wisconsin, will be a big factor in the potential for frost, which could lead the First Alert Weather Team into issuing a First Alert Weather Day due to the frost threat. 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 with mostly sunny skies.
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. Dangerously dry conditions will remain in the Badger State well into the first few days of June.
