We are in for another lovely day full of sunshine and even warmer temperatures. Highs this afternoon will reach into the mid 70's. Usually this time in September we are already seeing highs staying in the 60's. The pattern will remain warm and quiet through the next few days as the jet stream is pretty far north keeping the warmer air in place. High pressure is dominating from the middle of the country helping to keep the overall pattern dry with above average temperatures. The only change in this pattern may arrive tomorrow as there is a slight chance for rain, mainly in the afternoon. An upper level trough will be moving through our neck of the woods through tomorrow helping a couple of showers to develop. Highs for Wednesday will remain in the low 70's, still warmer than average but a touch cooler than what we're seeing today.
The rain chances will be short lived with sunshine back in the forecast for the end of the work week. Expect temperatures reminiscent of summer to start the first weekend of fall with high temperature readings approaching 80° Friday and Saturday. We are definitely being rewarded for that early taste of fall with a late summer glimpse. We are also finally getting a longer stretch of dry weather...what a change from the start of the month! No rain ahead (once we get through Wednesday) all the way through the weekend. Should be great weather for another event filled weekend, including Oktoberfest in La Crosse, the Color Dash in Eau Claire, and Cranberry Fest in Warrens.
