MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The growing season could end tonight in far northwest Wisconsin, where lows might drop into the mid-20’s to low 30’s.
The National Weather Service has issued a freeze watch for Monday night and Tuesday morning for Douglas, Burnett, and Washburn counties in Wisconsin – and much of northeast Minnesota.
Forecasters say a large ridge of Canadian high pressure will move southward into the region. Patchy frost is in the forecast for tonight elsewhere in northern Wisconsin, and along the Mississippi River.
It’s a lot cooler than it’s been in most of the Badger State Monday.
Occasional rain has fallen in the northern half of the state. Late morning temperatures were generally in the 50’s in northern Wisconsin, the 60’s in the state’s mid-section, and the 70’s in the south.
Only folks in the southern third of the state saw the sun Monday morning.
The rain and cloud cover was expected to move out by this evening – and then cool and dry weather will set in.
It might not hit 60 anywhere in Wisconsin until Wednesday. And the 70’s are not predicted anywhere all week.
