Hazy skies have returned to the Upper Midwest with winds back out of the north. The smoke from Canadian wildfires to the north is leading to poor air quality this morning. We should hopefully see some improvement with that as the morning goes on and the axis of thickest smoke continues east. However, expect the hazy skies to stick around much of this week.
Otherwise, a beautiful day expected. We'll see mostly sunny skies and highs this afternoon topping out in the lower 70s. Humidity is far lower today and will remain that way through the rest of the work week.
Tonight will be even cooler for Western Wisconsin with many of us dipping down into the 40s, especially, along and north of I-94 thanks to clear skies and light winds.
Wednesday will stay dry for the start of the Northern Wisconsin State Fair, but you'll notice more of a mix of sun and clouds for the area. Highs will top out in the lower to middle 70s.
Temperatures continue to gradually warm up as the week goes on for Thursday into Friday. Clouds will be increasing on Friday out ahead of a warm front that will lift into the area on Saturday. That's going to mean the chance for showers and thunderstorms. We'll still have to nail the timing down, but we're thinking it won't be an all day event. A lower chance for a few thunderstorms on Sunday with increasing heat and humidity for the area. We'll keep you posted on those rain chances for the weekend as the week goes on. Meanwhile, the warm and muggy weather looks to stick around into the first part of next week. That could mean the slight chance for more thunderstorms on Monday as well.
