Over the next couple of days an area of low pressure is slowly moving north from Kansas. An associated warm front will also be lifting north, carrying showers and storms into Wisconsin and the surrounding areas. Rain chances remain through the evening, but there will also may be a few times when it dries out. The skies will remain cloudy overnight with lows in the 50's and 60's. The higher dew points lately have kept overnight temperatures mild but have made for some muggy afternoons. Winds tonight will be light from the southeast.
Tomorrow brings another chance of scattered showers and storms. Much like today though, there may be times when it is dry. Highs will again be in the 70's Saturday and another half inch to one inch of rainfall in general can be expected across the area. It's always difficult when you are dealing with convection, as rainfall totals can vary greatly over short distance, so I wouldn't be surprised to see some places with much less, while others could end up with more.
The second half of the holiday weekend will offer better opportunities to dry out and spend some time outside for that backyard family gathering and all the parades and observances. This main system will be lifting north, while some drier air returns to the area. Though it will be mostly dry, with some sunshine expected both days, there are still indications a few late day and evening storms will be possible. Highs will be around 80° both days.
The pattern doesn't change much going into next week, with indications that yet another storm will be sliding in from the west next Tuesday and Wednesday, with more rain and storm chances. Temperatures will likely hover in the mid 70's for a few days as we head toward next weekend. Rain chances are also in the forecast so try to make the best of the wet weather and be thankful that everything is nice and green!
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend. And thank you to all of our troops, past and present.
