We will have a couple more days of comfortable weather before a little warm-up on Saturday. After that, it looks like a hint of Fall will be in the air.
If you have enjoyed the comfortable weather so far this week, you will enjoy the conditions again through tomorrow. We will have sunny to partly cloudy skies today and tomorrow. The humidity will be low. Winds will be light out of the northeast at 5 to 10 mph today and out of the north at around 5 mph tomorrow. High temps should reach the upper 70s this afternoon and top out around 80 on Friday afternoon.
On Saturday, the wind will shift more to the southwest and this will warm the temperatures up just a little. Highs should reach the low 80s as skies turn partly cloudy in the afternoon. A strong cold front arriving from the north Saturday evening will generate a 50% chance of scattered showers and storms. Even though it is a strong cold front, there will not be a lot of other ingredients to produce damaging storms, so the threat of severe weather looks minimal.
The front will finish its move through Northcentral Wisconsin on Sunday and this will keep the clouds and chance of scattered showers around. Temperatures will also be much cooler, only reaching the low 70s.
Hopefully we will get a little rain over the weekend, because it does not look like there will be much chance of rain next week, until perhaps Friday. From Monday through Thursday the weather looks dry and quite cool. High temps will only be in the 70 to 75 range from Monday through Wednesday with some Northwoods locations only in the 60s. Lows could drop into the 40s on a couple of night. By Thursday, the weather will turn a little milder with high temps rising into the middle and upper 70s.
Have an excellent Thursday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 30-July-2020
