New Weather Set & Chilly Day Ahead

***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog.  Wednesday was a big day WISN 12.  The curtain was pulled back and our new set was revealed!  The entire weather team is ecstatic to have a the new look and a new high tech work area.

Below is one picture of the Weather Watch 12 set.  The two monitors will be seen quite a bit on our newscasts.  When I took the picture the monitors showed the same image, but they will have different cameras and maps in them during our shows.

The second picture is the desk that is part of our work area.  The entire weather set can be seen on WISN 12 News.  Please check it out and let us know what you think in the comments section of the blog.

WISN Weather Watch 12 Set

Good thing we have the set to be excited about, because our weather won’t be much to write home about on Thursday.  Cool weather is back in the forecast.  As a storm departs the area, another chunck of cool air will slide across the area.

Below is the RPM forecast temperature map for Thursday.  The map is valid at 2pm Thursday and shows low to mid 40s in our area!  Keep in mind the average high is around 60!  A little heavier spring jacket may be in order for Thursday.

RPM Temps Thursday

As quickly as the cool weather takes hold, it will fade.  Sunshine is back in the forecast for Friday, and on Saturday if winds turn to the south highs should push well into the 60s.  I think a few spots well inland could touch 70!  Looks like a great day to get yardwork done before the rain arrives.

Not only will it be milder to start the weekend, thunderstorms will be possible later Saturday.  Our in-house high resolution computer model is now picking up on the moisture.

Below is the RPM forecast map at 10am Saturday.  This is as far out as the RPM forecast goes at this point.  This shows t-storms already flaring up in parts of Wisconsin.

RPM Storms Saturday

Also of note is the south to southeast wind.  This would keep lakeshore locations cooler due to the chilly air over Lake Michigan pushing inland.

We are always on Weather Watch, and this weekend I will be here keeping a close eye on the storms.  If any would turn severe we will keep you updated here in the blog and on WISN 12!

In the meantime, check out WISN 12 for not only our new look, but for the latest data on your weekend forecast.  Drop us a comment and let us know what you think about the new set…we would love to hear your feedback.

Have a great day!
