Current forecast

SATURDAY: Partly to  mostly cloudy and breezy.  A 40% chance of a few light rain showers in the afternoon north of Marathon County. Low:  29   High:  57   Wind: SE 12-22

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy to a bit of afternoon sun.  Mild with showers likely in the morning then a 30% chance of a few showers redeveloping later in the day south of Marathon County.   Low: 45     High: 65  Wind: S becoming SW 5-10

Warmer weather will push into our region over the next several days from the southwest. Highs should climb to the 60s over the southwest portions of the TV-9 viewing area Saturday with most spots having a good chance of getting above 60 Sunday. The pattern does look unsettled though. A front sliding in from the Northern Plains will bring the potential of a few light rain showers Saturday afternoon to areas north of Marathon County. As the front sags south across the region Saturday night, all areas have a chance of rain. The showers should be ending over the north half of the state Sunday morning. However with the front stalling over southern Wisconsin, it's possible a few spotty showers may redevelop in the afternoon and evening from Wausau and points south. It is too early to call where that boundary will set up so be sure to check in for updates.

In any case mild air will still around into Monday with another run at the lower or mid 60s possible, depending on the amount of sunshine. There will be another weak disturbance passing through Wisconsin so we can't rule out a few spotty showers. High pressure will push south out of Canada Tuesday and bring dry and somewhat cooler conditions. Temperatures will probably top out in the 50s around here. It should be nice though with lots of sunshine. Wednesday also looks mainly dry and seasonal.

A large storm system is projected to lift northeast from the Plains by Thursday. This will bring us a couple of rather wet days come Thursday and Friday. It will also be breezy and mild with a few thunderstorms mixed in. Overall it will be a very spring feeling week. It should go a long ways to start the process of greening up the grass and so on.

Have a great Easter weekend! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 9:00 p.m., 18-April 2014
