Well, this will be a dicey forecast, as we head off for northern Wisconsin. It’s very active near Wausau, but how long will it last?
At 254PM, CT, Wausau was reporting a temperature of 80 degrees with mostly clear skies. The leading edge of a swath of heavy rain over western Wisconsin lay from Owen to Pittsfield to Portage. The southern portion of this rain was embedded with severe storms around Madison and Janesville, but Wausau looked to be in for a soaking in the immediate future.
This afternoon looks to be a lost one for Wausau, with heavy rain likely thanks to a dual low complex, with the stronger center moving through Canada and an occlusal low over Siouxland, preparing to move of the east. The heavy rain at present is a result of the warm front, though the feature will occlude through Wausau overnight, and may bring some embedded rumbles of thunder. After that, however, the northern feature will do a great job of importing cooler, drier air into the region. After some early morning showers and storms, expect a pleasant couple of days for Wausau.
