Plenty of sunshine today has helped warm up afternoon temperatures into the lower 60s for most of the region, above average for this time of year. Winds a bit breezy today from the northwest due to an area of low pressure in Canada. Wind gusts of 25 mph at times today. With high pressure remaining this evening and tonight we can expect a very chilly night.
Winds will continue from the northwest but diminish to near calm just before dawn. Skies will remain clear setting up for a cold start to the week. Lows will be well down in the 30s for most of us. A sunny and chilly start to Sunday but highs will rebound into the upper 50s to around 60 degrees later in the afternoon. Clouds will increase later in the day out ahead of the next storm system we're tracking. Looks like any rain showers will hold off until Sunday evening after dark. Showers are looking more and more likely Sunday night into early Monday. More showers are possible on and off through the on Monday. For now rainfall totals look to increase more as this system moves east towards the Great Lakes. Doesn't look like we'll see a major washout here in western Wisconsin just a steady rain to start off the work week.
Monday will be the last of the mild days. The cold front will come through, winds will pick up Tuesday, and temperatures will be colder. An even colder airmass looks to drop south by the end of the week just in time for Halloween. That precipitation from that quick moving system on Thursday could fall as some snowflakes for parts of Western Wisconsin depending on the timing. While Halloween and trick-or-treating looks pretty chilly, at least it's looking dry. Skies clearing once again for next weekend but the chilly temperatures sticking around as well. We'll of course keep you updated on the forecast over the next week.
