The forecast for Oshkosh was easy enough, it was dry both days with not a lot of expected variance. However, Tuesday warmed up exactly 7 degrees for both the low AND high temps, slightly more than most were expecting. Well, the Weather Channel expected it at least, securing a fairly comfortable victory.
Monday: High 39, Low 19.
Tuesday: High 46, Low 26.

Today we have a 2-day trip from Weirton, WV to Oshkosh, WI, home of the annual EAA Airventure show! While that doesn’t happen until July, let’s take a look at what the next couple days bring over the Midwest as we make our way there!
High pressure sitting over the OH Valley is keeping the region high and dry today, with mostly sunny skies expected over much of the region. The day starts out pleasant as we head north towards Cleveland then as we hop on I-90 westward, it should be nice as sunny as we make our way through northern OH and northern IN, though some clouds may crop up later in the afternoon. We finish the day in Chicago.
A weak area of low pressure is pushing its way through IL this morning, and we could be seeing some light snow as it continues its way through the Great Lakes. As we head north from Chicago, the snow activity should be dwindling and be done by the time we cross into Wisconsin. Cloudy skies are expected for the rest of the day northward as we make our way into Oshkosh by the early afternoon.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you fellow readers! I hope you all enjoyed a fun day of festivities… or just staying in watching the NCAA Selection Show. Either way sounds good to me! As we head into the start of the new workweek, let’s see how the weather pans out for our final week of official Winter! Spring is almost here everybody!!
At 753pm CDT, the temperature at Oshkosh, WI was 33 degrees under fair skies. High pressure is found throughout the Plains and Upper Midwest this evening, though a weak mid-level disturbance is shifting through the area. This won’t really affect the Oshkosh area much, other than blot out the moon tonight. High pressure controls the area through Monday into Tuesday, keeping conditions dry and quiet. An area of low pressure looks to pass off to the south of the region on Tuesday evening, and the region kinda sits between systems as an area of low pressure pushes through Ontario late Tuesday into early Wednesday as well. That just means Oshkosh will stay mostly cloudy over the next couple of days, but dry!
