Mostly sunny and dry conditions will continue in the state for the next few days making for comfortable afternoons. Despite the nice weather, many Wisconsinites are asking for rain showers due to drought conditions and it does seem like we will get a good deal on Thursday.

In some respects today will be a repeat of yesterday with a few minor changes. Expect similar temperatures but a few degrees cooler as we have high pressure in the area keeping us mostly dry and sunny. While the breezy winds will calm down today, we should have partly cloudy skies develop around lunchtime with a small chance for a developing sprinkle. The clouds shouldn't stick around nearly as long, turning clear before sundown. The clear skies tonight will have another strong cooling effect which will drop many cities into the 40s and a few to the north into the upper 30s which will be nice after a warm day.
Wednesday will take full advantage of the high pressure with mostly to completely sunny skies. This will once again heat the air to near 80 degrees so it will be a very tranquil day if you find yourself in the shade. Wednesday will be dry for the entirety of the day but an incoming system will move showers and storms into the area shortly.
Thursday expect the early morning to be pleasant before active weather moves in. It is still uncertain where and when showers and thunderstorms will strike but many cities should be in store for a good downpour. Thursday will also turn a bit humid with the increase of moisture content so it may be uncomfortable in spots. There is currently a level 1 risk for severe weather for much of the area on Thursday and a level 2 risk for Adams, Juneau, and Wood counties.
Friday - Sunday afternoon shouldn't be too bad with partly cloudy skies most of the time and seasonal to warm temperatures. Forecast computer models vary quite a bit being a week out, but most agree we have a good chance of widespread showers Sunday night which should help relieve some of the droughts many areas are experiencing.
