We’re headed to southern Wisconsin for today’s forecast. Janesville has been in the news lately because it is the home of Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan.
At 345PM, CT, Janesville was reporting a temperature of 75 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. High pressure was in control for the area, but an offshore Lake Michigan breeze is helping touch a few showers and storms near Chicago.
There is an upper level trough swinging through the Great Lakes that belies the high pressure at the surface, but gives a little impetus for the thunderstorms near the Lakes. The broad troughing across the region also indicates cooler temperatures for places like Janesville. There will be a weak low moving through Ontario that may touch off an isolated shower or storm late on Wednesday, but the threat will be quite low.

The NAM is calling for a heatwave again, and has been more accurate with the warm temperatures all summer, however the overall upper level pattern is not conducive to the heat. A look at the satellite shows the convective activity surrounding Lake Michigan, but leaving Janesville alone
