GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Most of Wisconsin escaped the severe weather that neighboring Minnesota had last night -- but far western Wisconsin did get some of the spillover.
Almost two-and-a-half inches of rain fell near Hudson. Highway 29 near Menomonie had up to 3 inches of water.
In Pierce County, a fallen tree blocked Highway 35. Nearby Elmwood also had some trees down.
Parts of southeast Wisconsin had hail Thursday evening -- three-fourths of an inch at Jackson.
Much of Minnesota had heavy storms -- including a tornado at Gaylord and 80 mile an hour winds at Waseca. Most of those storms fizzed out before they could head east into Wisconsin.
A cold front will sweep across the Badger State Friday. Forecasters say light rain is possible until the front passes.
In the Green Bay area, an area of high pressure will keep us dry and mostly sunny on Saturday with a high near 68 and breezy west winds at 10 to 20 miles per hour.
There’s a chance of showers on Saturday night into Sunday morning and again on Sunday afternoon, otherwise look for mostly cloudy skies with a high near 70.
After that, it should stay dry at least into Saturday night when another wave of thunderstorms could go through. There's also a chance of rain on Mother's Day.
Highs are forecast in the 60's and 70's in most of the state through the weekend. It's supposed to get cooler again on Monday.
