First Alert Weather: Kicking off autumn with risk of wet weather
A bit cooler for the upcoming weekend with a brisk breeze. The umbrella may come in handy at times.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The drought continues in North Central Wisconsin and any rain we can get is a good thing, even if we are at the tail end of the growing season. It will be breezy for the next couple of days, with considerable cloudiness and times of rain or showers in the region. The rain gear could be needed for high school football games Friday evening. The umbrella will be good to have on hand during the first half of the weekend, while it is still likely to be more in the way of dry versus damp on Sunday. Sunshine returns next week, with comfortable daytime temperatures close to 70 degrees, while overnight lows will still stay well above the freezing mark.
