LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Drew Williams
Another hot and humid day to finish out this first weekend of the fall season. Sunny and dry today as well but we'll see the return of cooler temperatures and wet weather in the coming days.
Above average temperatures and summer-like weather will be the story once again today. A cold front parked just to our west will finally begin working its way into our area but not until tonight into Monday. Temperatures are much cooler on the back side of that front but since we're to the east we're stuck in a sector with southerly flow. Therefore it's just been plain hot in our area. Expect one more day of this sweltering heat.
Scattered showers and storms have been quite abundant along that cold front to our west. Unfortunately for us, they have remained to our west in the Dakotas and Minnesota. They've actually see a lot of rain these last few days. At least for most of Western Wisconsin today looks dry. The mostly sunny sky along with southerly winds once again will bring temperatures into the upper 80's and low 90's this afternoon. It will also be pretty hot in The Frozen Tundra this afternoon as The Packers take on the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau Field. Temperatures will be near 90 at kickoff with plenty of sunshine.
Rain and storm chances will then be increasing overnight then into Monday and Tuesday as that front finally works through our area. This will have the potential to bring some needed rainfall in what has been a very dry month overall and it will also allow temperatures to cool off. Monday highs will still be above average, in the upper 70's and low 80's. A more significant cool down is expected starting Tuesday with highs around 70 and continued rain showers. By the middle of the week we could be looking at below average temperatures. High pressure will build to the west, clearing the skies Wednesday and allowing a cooler air mass to trickle down from Canada. Highs will only be in the mid to low 60's for the remainder of the work week. Friday looks to be the coolest day in a while with highs in the 50's potentially, plus a chance of a few showers. by the middle of the week. Actually a little below
Until then, enjoy the rest of the weekend and stay cool!
