Women’s World Cup on Fox 11

June 1st, 2015 at 10:03 am by under Sports

Fox Sports is the new home for FIFA World Cup soccer. Coverage will include the 2018 and 2022 men’s World Cup tournaments, but kicks off this week with coverage of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which is being held in six cities across Canada.

The coverage is being split between three networks: Fox/Fox 11 (16 games), Fox Sports 1 (29 games) and Fox Sports 2 (seven games). Digitally, all games are available on tablets and mobile devices via the FOX Sports GO app and online at www.FOXSportsGO.com.

Each team has three games in pool play. Here is the schedule for Team USA:

* June 8, 6:30 p.m. vs. Australia, on Fox Sports 1

* June 12, 6:45 p.m. p.m. vs. Sweden on Fox 11

* June 16, 6:45 p.m. vs. Nigeria on Fox 11

For a full list of all of the games, click here.

When games are on Fox 11, they will pre-empt some of our regular programming. We will post updates on air, on the ticker, through our Facebook page, and online. You can check out Fox 11’s full daily schedule here.

Some days, shows such as “Wheel of Fortune” or “Jeopardy!” may be moved to other times. “Wheel” airs at 5:30pm, for example, for a couple of 6pm weekday games. Other shows will not be aired and would be ‘skipped’ – such as “Ellen” and “Judge Judy” on days with 2pm weekday games. It all depends on the day and time of the game.

Also, for the schedule below of games on Fox 11, the time listed is when pre-game coverage starts. In most cases, the matches will start about 45 minutes after the time listed here. All times here are Central.

Rainy Sunday helps the rainfall deficit

May 25th, 2015 at 7:23 am by under News, Weather

Heavy rain at times Sunday amounted to more than an inch in most locations in northeast Wisconsin which helped with our rainfall deficit for the year, although we’ll still need more rain to bring us back to normal.  We have chances for more rain in the forecast over the next week so the totals will keep rising.  If you’re heading to a Memorial Day observance or parade, keep the umbrella close at hand.

March 25th snow won’t make up for season

March 26th, 2015 at 4:22 am by under Weather

A wintry mix of rain and sleet changed to snow early Wednesday morning and continued throughout the morning commute creating hazardous driving conditions and numerous accidents.  Snow totals were mainly in the 1 to 3 inch range with a few places picking up a bit more.

Our snow has been lacking this year even with the late season snow we had yesterday.  In Green Bay totals for the season are about 15 inches below normal and it doesn’t look like we’ll make up the difference as temperatures are on the rise from this weekend through the middle of next week.

Unseasonably warm weather through the weekend

March 10th, 2015 at 8:05 am by under Weather

There’s a whole lot of melting going on these days as temperatures have risen well above normal the past few days. (Normal high is 36)   Snow depth in Green Bay Saturday was 4 inches, Sunday it was 3 and Monday, with a high temperature of 53 degrees, the snow depth was down to a measly inch.  It looks like the last inch will melt today with a high of 58.  It doesn’t look like we’ll get a record high today and temperatures will actually cool tomorrow after a cold front pushes through the state tonight.  BTW, if we get to 60 degrees today or Friday as forecast, it will be the first 60 degree day since October 27th of last year.

We’ll get snow Tuesday, but how much?

March 1st, 2015 at 11:25 am by under Weather

Tue_Snow

We will have snow on Tuesday.  The big question is how much will we get?  (The image above shows the forecast snow amount for Green Bay by 10pm Tuesday by two different weather forecasting models.)  The latest computer models have a storm arriving Tuesday in the form of all snow for NE Wisconsin.  The snow will start early in the morning, and last through the afternoon.  The heaviest snow will fall around mid-day.  There are two limiting factors to how much snow we’ll get.  The strong lift with this system moves out early in the afternoon, so snow rates will slow down after a brief “burst of snow” mid-day.  Also, by the early evening a dry layer of air will wrap into the storm acting to shut down snow production.  As of now (Sunday morning) it looks like most of our area will get 3″ to 4″ of snow.   Isolated areas could see up to 5″.  We’ll continue to monitor this storm and will bring you the latest updates on Fox 11 News and Fox11online.com.


Winter Storm Possible Tuesday

February 28th, 2015 at 11:17 am by under Weather

Travel Tuesday may be slow and slick across the badger state.

Over the past few days several weather computer models have placed a strong storm system in Wisconsin.  The image above is the forecast track for the storm and the associated swath of snow on it’s northeast side.  The storm track and the amount of moisture in this storm all point to a healthy snow event for NE Wisconsin.

While it’s too far out in time to give specific snow forecasts for each town in NE Wisconsin, I do believe may areas will see 5″ of snow with isolated area getting even more of the white stuff.

The snow is expected to start late Monday night, become heaviest mid-day Tuesday, and tapper off to flurries Tuesday night.  Gusty winds Tuesday night will cause significant blowing and drifting of the snow.  If you have travel plans Tuesday or early Wednesday keep a very close eye on the latest forecast.  We’ll be updating you with the latest forecast here, and on Fox 11 news.


Warming up this weekend but still chilly

February 27th, 2015 at 9:35 am by under Weather

We’ll see a lot of sunshine today with a high near 17. Tomorrow’s high will hit 20 and Sunday’s temperature will top out near 27 with a chance of snow.  We may get a half inch to an inch of snow accumulation from that but it’s a more potent storm that may impact the area on Tuesday that we’re keeping a close eye on.  Heavy snow will be falling Tuesday in the region but exactly where is the question.  It depends on the track of the storm.  The latest ECMWF computer model shows the heavy band of snow across Green Bay and the Fox Cities and areas east  but things may change.  We’ll keep you posted on the newest developments.

Wind Chills to -20 this morning

February 26th, 2015 at 7:45 am by under Weather

The next 24 hours will bring much colder than normal temperatures (normal high is 32). It’s another cold morning with temperatures below zero and wind chills to -20.  We’ll see chills below zero all day and temperatures will reach near 11. If you’re looking for warmth…you may have to wait a while.  According to the Climate Prediction Center’s latest data, we can expect below normal temperatures overall for the March 5th through 11th period.   The good news is that after, I’m seeing indications of warmer than normal temperatures.  The normal high for March 12th is 37 and by the end of March, the normal high is 46.

It’s Cold…Again!

February 25th, 2015 at 10:45 am by under Weather

After a high of 34 degrees in Green Bay yesterday, the Arctic air is back!  We’ll see a high temperature near 12 today and 9 tomorrow with a “wake up” temperature of -7 tomorrow morning.  The cold weather will continue through Friday then a warmer weekend is ahead. A winter storm to our southwest will not impact northeast Wisconsin but it will put down 7 to 10 inches of snow in parts of Iowa through this evening.

Windy and warmer with snow showers

February 24th, 2015 at 7:47 am by under Weather

Southwest winds will be gusting to 30 mph this morning and continue to be strong this afternoon as they turn more to the west and eventually northwest ushering in colder air tonight.  Be careful on the roads today as snow showers are possible through about 4 pm today. After today it gets much colder…again. Highs near 10 tomorrow and Thursday.  And yes we’ve have had a colder than normal February so far.  The average temperature is running well below where it usually is for the month.
