Wildfire risk high in Wisconsin, dry hot weekend in store

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s risk of wildfires keeps getting higher, despite cooler and damper weather this week. The DNR says the fire danger is high Thursday in all of the Badger State except for the four northern-most counties. The wildfire risk is moderate in Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, and Iron counties. In many other places, burning is only allowed from 6-to-midnight tonight for small debris piles, covered barrels, and grass lands of at least an acre. Fires on larger grass lots need permits – and in some places, residents must check with local authorities to find out the proper rules. The National Weather Service says cooler temperatures will prevail Thursday afternoon with highs in the 40’s-and-50’s. Rain is expected in western Wisconsin this evening, and forecasters say it will spread statewide overnight with possible snow in the north after midnight. The rain and snow will linger in the eastern half of the state tomorrow morning. Then, you can expect a dry weekend with warming temperatures. Far southwest Wisconsin could see 80-degrees again by Sunday.
