Gorgeous summer weather will be in the area today and it won’t be too bad through the weekend. However, there might be a bit of rain here and there which you will need to plan for.
Today: Rather sunny and pleasant with a nice breeze.
High: 76 Wind: NW 10-20
Tonight: A few scattered clouds and quiet.
Minimum: 52 Wind: Light NW
Friday: Sunny to partly cloudy with a brief shower or thunderstorm possible in the afternoon, especially around Wausau or in areas to the south and west.
High: 76 Wind: NW 5-15
You will be able to enjoy plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures for today. It’s one of those summer days when you’ll want to ‘soak it all in’ and remember how nice summer can be in this part of the country. High temperatures will be in the 70s and there will be a cool northwesterly breeze at 10-20 mph. Tomorrow will be similar except a few more clouds will appear during the afternoon and there could be a brief shower or thunderstorm around Wausau or places to the south and west. Highs will be in the 70s.
The only downside to the forecast is that rain will likely move into the area on Saturday. Clouds will increase and areas of rain or a few rumbles of thunder will develop around noon and into the afternoon. This wet weather should fade on Saturday evening, leaving us with dry and more pleasant weather on Sunday. High temperatures will be in the low 70s on Saturday, then rise into the mid to upper 70s on Sunday.
A warm front moving through north-central Wisconsin on Monday will produce a small chance of thunderstorms and the mercury is expected to reach the upper 70s. Much warmer and more humid weather will arrive on Tuesday and remain on Wednesday. High temperatures will likely reach the upper 80s on Tuesday and the low to mid 80s on Wednesday. There should be plenty of sunshine on Tuesday, then a cold front crossing Wednesday afternoon will generate a good chance of thunderstorms.
Good Thursday ! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, June 9, 2022
On this date in weather history: 1953 – A tornado struck the town of Worcester MA killing ninety people. Northeastern states generally remain free of damaging tornadoes, but in this case a low-pressure system, responsible for producing severe thunderstorms in Michigan and Ohio the day before, brought extreme weather to the New Hampshire and central Massachusetts. The tornado, at times up to a mile wide, traveled 46 miles through Worcester County. He mangled steel towers built to withstand 375 mph winds. Debris from the tornado fell in the Boston area and the adjacent Atlantic Ocean. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
