High pressure is around one more day and holds off all rain chances for 24 more hours! 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, mainly Thursday afternoon and throughout the weekend. We will see an increased chance of scattered 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, but we could still see anywhere from 1/4" to 1" over a period of the entire weekend.
