  • With warm air lifting into our region and light winds, widespread dense fog has rolled into Wisconsin leading to "pea soup" conditions which should continue through mid-morning. A ridge at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere will provide quiet weather conditions here and for hundreds of miles around us today.

  • After the fog, we'll have an abundance of sunshine with gentle southwest winds driving our temperatures into the upper 50s. Travel should be unhampered by any troublesome weather around our region through the weekend.

  • While Thanksgiving Thursday starts with sunshine, we'll notice an increase in clouds as a powerful cold front approaches from the west. This could trigger a few showers late in the day and into the evening. The boundary's bigger impact will be on temperatures. Readings will plummet from almost 60 degrees on "Turkey Day" to barely 40 degrees on "Black Friday."
