Windy, Rainy Wednesday; Quiet Weather on tap Today for Thanksgiving
It was a windy and rainy Wednesday throughout much of
eastern and southeast Wisconsin as a storm moving through the Midwest brought
heavy snow to much of northern Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and Minnesota and filled
up the rain gauge in southern parts of the state, with radar estimates showing
anywhere from three-quarters of an inch, to over an inch of rain between
Tuesday night and late Wednesday morning.
The winds also picked up in intensity, with the Fond du Lac
airport measuring a wind gust of 48 miles per hour just before 2 pm. The Sheboygan
County Airport measured a peak wind gust of 51 miles per hour Wednesday afternoon,
with Kenosha’s airport seeing a 56 mph wind gust and Mitchell International
Airport in Milwaukee seeing a 53 mile-per-hour gust.
The forecast looks quiet for Thanksgiving Day – with Partly
Sunny skies and highs in the mid-30s. Another chance for rain and snow is set
to move in Friday and into the weekend.
