Fairly quiet weather will stick around the first several days of this week in our area. A bit milder air is flowing in now thanks to the southwest flow ahead of a front dropping down through the Upper Midwest. The air is very dry so no precipitation is associated with it.
Sunday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low: 28 Wind: Light SW
Monday: Partly cloudy and seasonal. High: 55 Wind: WNW 8-18
Cooler air will push down from Canada Monday night into Tuesday morning on northwest winds. That may drive some lake effect flurries into far northern Wisconsin. Otherwise you can expect more sunshine in central Wisconsin and that will continue Wednesday as high pressure drifts through. The lows Tuesday morning should be around 31 with highs from the upper 30s north to middle 40s south. It will be brisk Wednesday morning, in the low 20s. However it should climb nicely to the upper 40s in the afternoon.
A weak low pressure system will slowly move east from the Plains late in the week. This will push some clouds back into our region. There will be a small chance of some scattered light rain showers late Thursday and Friday. The chance of showers will be a touch higher over the weekend. However the amounts look very minor, like a few tenths of a inch or less over the whole stretch. Otherwise temperatures won’t be too far from normal, generally topping out around 50 with lows in the upper 30s to near 40.
Have a nice evening! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 9:00 p.m., 21-October 2018
