NBC26 Storm Shield Forecast

Don't forget the umbrellas as you head out the door today because you will need it. Today's forecast calls for scattered to widespread rain through the majority of the day. Temperatures will rise into the upper 40s and lower 50s with a southwest wind at 5 to 15 mph with some higher gusts. Rainfall totals will range from a quarter to three quarters of an inch. This may result in flooding concerns along area rivers and streams due to the snow melt adding water to the tributaries. We will cool off to the lower 40s Tuesday with sunny skies and winds out of the north at 5 to 10 mph. There's the potential for a wintry mix or snow Wednesday morning, some minor accumulation is possible, especially in the Northwoods. Highs will climb into the lower 40s in the afternoon. A couple light rain showers may pass through on our Thursday with highs getting up to near 50. On Friday, we will off a tad back in the mid 40s with mostly sunny skies.
