Some rather chilly air from the polar regions has pushed into our region, but it won’t stick around too long. Lows Monday night should drop into the 0s with light northwest winds becoming south by morning. A warm front will push across Wisconsin Tuesday bringing gusty south to southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph. We will have some high level cloudiness and highs climbing back up to the upper 30s to near 40 degrees.
The weather pattern will stay very quiet through the weekend. Wednesday should bring a mix of clouds and sun along with lows in the mid 20s and highs around 41 degrees. It won’t be nearly as breezy. Slightly cooler air could dip in for Thursday with lows around 20 and highs around 39 degrees. Friday looks nice as well with some sunshine along with lows near 20 and highs around 41 degrees.
A warm front will slide through again Saturday, bringing just a small chance of flurries or sprinkles in the morning. Hopefully, we will get some breaks of sunshine later in the day. Lows should be around 23 with highs in the low 40s.
It looks warmer Sunday and next Monday with partly sunny skies. Highs could soar to the upper 40s. In fact, some low 50s wouldn’t surprise me! Lows should be in the 20s. It does look rather breezy on Sunday.
There are signs of some possible rain working in by Tuesday the 9th.
Have a nice evening! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 2:15 p.m., 1-March 2021
