Gorgeous weather is in store for any outdoor plans today as high pressure remains dominant to the southwest. Sunny skies will prevail throughout the day with light west-northwesterly winds and a return to seasonable temperatures as highs climb into the low 70s this afternoon. We won’t see much change in the weather story tonight as mainly clear skies stick around. Our average lows are now into the mid-40s, and we’re forecast to drop right around there overnight. Meanwhile tomorrow, a weak cold front is expected to drop out of Canada to the south with our next wave of high pressure quickly following behind. This boundary will move through dry, bringing just a few extra clouds with plenty of sunshine in store and temperatures warming into the upper 70s.

Much of this week will favor dry weather in the region as an upper-level ridge of high pressure gradually builds over the Central United States, slowly pushing eastward throughout the week. On Monday, a large surface high will be situated south of the Hudson Bay, placing Western Wisconsin in southerly return flow on the backside with a nice warm up in store. Temperatures to start the week will range from the upper 70s to around 80, before we see consistent readings in the low to mid-80s through Friday with south and southwest winds sticking around. By late in the week and into next weekend, there are indications of a potential storm system approaching from the northwest, which may lead to chances for a few showers and storms during this time frame. For now, things look to stay quiet with sunny weather sticking around. Enjoy the fantastic weather ahead!
