We are in for a lovely day! And, really a nice stretch of days! High pressure is in control keeping our weather pattern very quiet and nice through at least Thursday. Expect sunny skies, fairly light winds and temperatures in the mid 60s this afternoon. This is still below average for this time of year (normally we are still in the low 70s) but at least it is an improvement from yesterday. Not quite as cool overnight, with mostly clear skies and lows in the low 40s. We should not see the widespread threat of frost from this morning, but there is still a good chance of seeing patchy dense fog by tomorrow morning.
The mercury will continue to rise tomorrow and Thursday back into the upper 60s. Winds will begin to shift to a more southerly direction, even today seeing a west/southwest wind, helping to bring some warmer air into the region. Still sunny and quiet for the next two days...just perfect weather for the final official days of summer. We could see some extra clouds working their way in by later Thursday as the next system approaches.
We will really start to see and feel the change by Friday. A cold front to our west will bring the threat of rain and thunder back into the forecast to end the work week, sticking around into the weekend! It does look like most of the wet weather will hold off until the afternoon Friday, but there is still the possibility of a shower early, so plan ahead if you are heading out to Oktoberfest in Chippewa Falls. The front should cross the area sometime on Saturday with a few more showers and storms. High temperatures will reach into the mid 70s, actually above average for this time of year! Sunday starts to cool back down into the low 70s as skies begin to clear and the mercury keeps falling, down into the mid 60s for the start of next week.
