WLDY-WJBL NEWS 5-20-20 The next few days will bring the return of some nice May weather. High pressure will be wrapped around the state to the north and west, while the same upper level low pressure system sits to our southeast. The overall air mass is warm and with the return of some sunshine, we will enjoy a warm up back into the 70’s. Today we will trend to a sunnier late afternoon and end up reaching the mid 70’s with still some light breezes around. Thursday will be a similar day with the chance to see some clouds return by later in the afternoon, again with highs in the mid 70’s. Heading into Friday clouds look to become more prevalent again with south and southeast flow. Moisture will be on the increase, while a weak front will be located to our west. Though a shower may sneak into western areas by late in the day, chances look very low and the majority of our area should stay dry.

(AP) Wisconsin crime labs are taking longer to test evidence for DNA, a potential liability for Attorney General Josh Kaul after he hammered his Republican opponent about testing delays during their 2018 campaign. Kaul released a report Wednesday that shows DNA testing took an average of 97 days in 2019, up from 80 days in 2018 and 76 days in 2017 under Republican Brad Schimel. Kaul criticized Schimel during the 2018 campaign for taking too long to process evidence at the crime labs. The report shows Kaul has not been able to speed up the analyses. (CNN) – Children who may have developed the new coronavirus-related multisystem inflammatory syndrome will likely have to hospitalized, but their parents should still bring them for treatment, doctors say. The symptoms of MIS-C, which is believed to be a complication of COVID-19 that happens in children, do not look like the classic symptoms. Those affected may experience stomach pain, vomiting, fever and possibly a rash, according to experts at a meeting organized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Any child at home who has fever, abdominal pain or symptoms such as rash and conjunctivitis should be seen by a pediatrician right away,” said Dr. James Schneider, who heads pediatric critical care at Northwell Health in New York. “I think we need to have a low threshold for evaluation.” Many children with MIS-C have damage to their hearts, possibly as a result of a delayed immune response to COVID-19, and need immediate treatment. Most were previously healthy and had no underlying conditions.
