Clear skies stick around tonight as temperatures fall into the mid 50s with calm winds.

High pressure is around one more day for our Wednesday. High temperatures will climb to the mid 70s near the lake with upper 70s to near 80 further inland under light winds around 5 mph from the east.

A slow moving area of low pressure begins to impact Northeast Wisconsin beginning Thursday through the weekend. We will see an increased chance of some showers and isolated thunderstorms.

Right now it does appear that the heaviest rainfall totals over the course of that period will occur in western parts of the state with a half inch to an inch and a quarter by Sunday night. Most of Northeast Wisconsin will see a tenth of an inch to a quarter inch.
