A line of showers is currently moving through southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois Thursday evening following the passage of a cold front.

Temperatures Thursday warmed into the low 70s but have quickly fallen into the 60s, and even 50s, now that the front has passed.  Winds are also increasing from the North gusting close to 30-35 mph.  There were a few isolated thunderstorms earlier but the rain is moving into an environment with little instability.  The rain will, however, become more widespread through the evening before coming to and end from west to east by 10pm.  Skies will then turn partly cloudy overnight.

Skies will quickly turn partly cloudy with temperatures falling into the low 40s.  Rainfall amounts won’t be much and should remain right around a quarter of an inch.
