StormTeam Outlook: Wednesday, October 1
Benjamin Dery, Meteorologist
Welcome to October!
Ah, the transition season; where you can have 80s and 40s in the same week. Such temperature swings do provide more frequent chances for showers, and that's what we're looking at the next few days.
Rain showers and isolated thunder moves in later this morning. Areas across northwest Wisconsin look to see the most rain, between 0.25-0.5" with locally heavier totals within any storms. Expect lesser amounts further north and west, but still enough to wet the ground over much of the Northland.
We'll see a break from the rainfall, perhaps some peeks of sun Thursday before another wave moves in Friday. Showers move back into the region Thursday night through Friday with the same areas getting hit with more rainfall.
Behind this second system, the cold air marches in. Temperatures likely won't get out of the 40s at least until Sunday. There are even hints at the first snowflakes mixing in with rain showers Friday night. But don't worry, nothing will be sticking this time.
