MAR 28, 2020 | Heavy Rain Possible This Weekend

LAST UPDATE : MAR 26, 2020

1:50PM - THU MAR 26 - A large storm system will bring warmer temps and rain this weekend as multiple rounds of precipitation push north through the state.

Models show potential for 1.0-1.5" in some areas. EC/GFS/CAN seem to generally focus highest amounts on southern WI. I think that's probably a good place to start but at this forecast hour it's still okay to wait. There will be multiple rounds with a lull or two in-between, not raining the entire time for most places. Thunderstorms are possible too. Please see the other storm event for Saturday for details. https://www.wisconsinwx.com/storm.aspx?s=209

Snow may mix in at times over northern Wisconsin however not expecting any significant accumulations at this time. I used a target area over Minnesota for potential of 1.0-1.5" of rainfall, but that will depend somewhat on precipitation type as some models show some snow. PROBABLY going to be mostly rain there based on what I'm seeing.

The AO has been strongly positive since late December but recently we've seen it return to neutral for the first time since late January. Fitting that we seem to be in the midst of a stormy pattern.
Raining pretty good along HWY 10 from Osseo to Stevens Point to north of Green Bay. Rainfall estimates over 0.5" in spots means forecast is on target. Some snow will mix in overnight in the northeast before ending...minor accums if anything. Quiet night in the south with a scattered rain shower. Have a great night!
