Discussion:
Clouds on the back side of a strong low pressure area near Lake Michigan will likely hang around most of Thursday night in Wisconsin.  It should be a bit breezy with lows mostly in the 50s, although some upper 40s are possible in western areas where the clouds may clear off toward morning.   Friday looks partly sunny with a few showers possible in the evening mainly in west and southwest Wisconsin.  The weekend should be partly sunny and warm with highs reaching well into the 80s by Sunday in many spots.  Showers are possible Sunday night as the next front moves in.  That one will sit over Wisconsin Monday bringing additional showers and thunderstorms.  After that we should have a prolonged quiet spell as high pressure drifts in from Canada.  It will also bring cooler and drier air in.  This could lead to lows eventually reaching the 30s in some marshes later next week with highs mostly in the 70s.   Forecast confidence is moderately high the next few days.
Forecast:     **The  forecast low temperature is for vine level**
