If you have any outdoor plans or chores to do, today is the day to get them done! It will be yet another spectacular day of sunshine and mild temperatures as high pressure hangs out in the vicinity. This will also keep winds on the lighter side, predominantly out of the west between 5 and 10 miles per hour, a stark contrast from the very gusty winds we saw yesterday and will see for tomorrow. High temperatures will manage to climb to the upper 50s and low 60s once again, making for an early fall-like feel to the air. Otherwise, tonight will be another mild one with clear skies early on and temperatures falling only to the low 40s with some isolated upper 30s in store.

Tomorrow, a warm front will be lifting through Wisconsin to the northeast, bringing the return of strong, gusty winds from the south and southwest with a mix of sun and clouds. Another push of mild air will build into the area, resulting in afternoon highs just over 20 degrees above average in the mid-60s. A cold front will then move through during the evening, signaling the end of our warmer weather as cooler northwest flow takes hold with temperatures on Friday running much closer to normal in the low 40s with sunshine. Opening weekend of the gun deer hunting season will unfortunately feature no tracking snow this year, but we will have some very nice weather to contend with as high pressure builds into the region. Both Saturday and Sunday will have abundant sunshine with temperatures working into the upper 40s. That said, you’ll likely need the insulated hunting gear if you’re heading out during the early morning hours as lows will be in the upper 20s and low 30s. For now, the forecast is dry into the start of Thanksgiving week with more clouds than sun, but we are keeping an eye on a few chances for precipitation that may be added later as details become clearer. Temperatures will gradually cool into the low 40s by Tuesday with indications for even colder weather as we approach Turkey day.
