After a cool start, temperatures will be rising back into the upper 70s this afternoon thanks to plenty of sunshine. It will be another nice, dry day to enjoy the outdoors, with low humidity. High pressure centered over the northern Great Lakes will then begin to drift east, and this will allow winds to shift more to the southeast and south as we head towards the holiday weekend.
A weak front will be sliding into the northern part of the state Friday, which may bring some extra clouds during the afternoon. Though most places likely stay dry, there are some indications a few showers and storms may pop up later in the day up in our northern areas. Otherwise expect temperatures to warm back above 80.
The holiday weekend still looks great at this point. Such great news for fireworks, barbecues, parades, picnics and the Chippewa Valley Air Show. For the Fourth, plenty of sunshine is expected as temperatures continue to rise, topping out into the low and mid 80s. It will be a typical summer day, and just perfect weather to spend some time outdoors! Just do not forget to drink plenty of water and frequently reapply sunscreen if you will be outdoors for long periods of time.
Going into Sunday, we will be watching the approach of the next cold front across the Plains. For the last few days this system looked like it would arrive by later Sunday afternoon, but it's looking a touch slower, so we may not get rain chances in here until the evening hours at the earliest. This would make for a partly sunny and very warm day with higher humidity. Temperatures should be able to rise into the middle 80s and it will feel even hotter (and stickier) factoring in the humidity. As the front nears, shower and storm chances will increase into the night and may linger into at least part of Monday. Going into next week it looks to dry out again rather quickly, while temperatures fall back to around average levels in the low 80s.
