Friday- August 29, 2014
TONIGHT: Cloudy skies tonight with a 70% chance of showers and a few rumbles of thunder. Rain in Northern Wisconsin could lead to more flooding as streams have been reported high. Lows will be in the mid 50s with NE winds at 5-10mph.
SATURDAY: A low pressure system pushes east into the U.P. of Michigan and will bring a good chance of rain for areas east of Ashland. High pressure builds from the northwest, which should keep places west of Ashland drier with only a 30% chance of a pop up thunderstorm in the afternoon. Expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 60s. An east wind will keep temperatures cooler by the lake.
SUNDAY:Another low is approaching the Northland. It drags a cold front through the region in the late afternoon/evening giving us a 50% chance of storms. Morning lows are in the low 50s and highs in the low 70s. Overnight into Monday there's an 80% chance of storms, some of them severe with heavy rains, high winds and hail the primary threats. Flooding will be a concern again as soils are moist.
MONDAY: The cold front is slowly pushing east and the rain goes with it. Expect lows in the upper 50s and highs again in the low 70s. Chance of rain is 50% and continues for places east of the Twin Ports into the afternoon.
TUESDAY: Expect partly cloudy skies with lows in the low 50s and highs in the low 70s. A small wave in the jetstream brings a 30% chance of showers and storms.
