How cool will it be for today? Cool enough that you will want a long-sleeve shirt or light jacket on if you are spending any significant period of time outdoors. High temps will be in the upper 50s in the Northwoods and low to mid 60s farther south. In addition to the cool temps, conditions will also be breezy and there could be a few sprinkles at times. It will feel more like Fall than Summer. Winds will be out of the northwest at 15 to 25 mph.
Tomorrow will be cooler than normal once again but not quite as cool as today with the mercury reaching the 70-degree mark. Once again there might be a few sprinkles or a spotty shower but the chance will mainly be confined to areas northeast of Marathon county.
Temps will be back to normal on Wednesday with highs around 80 and then the weather will remain fairly seasonal through the weekend. The mercury will the low to mid 80s on Thursday and then top out in the upper 70s to low 80s from Friday through Sunday.
The main chance of rain later this week will come on Thursday when some scattered thunderstorms are likely. Some rain and a few storms could linger in the southeastern part of the area on Friday, then it looks mainly dry for the weekend. As of now, there is only a slight chance of spotty showers or storms on Sunday.

Have an fine Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, Morning Update, 21 June-2021
On this date in weather history: 1893 - On the first day of summer the temperature at Dodge City, KS, soared to 106 degrees during the midst of a blistering heat wave. The heat wave initiated a severe three year drought in the Central Plains Region. Ironically, at about the same time, heavy rains in the Mississippi Valley were causing the river to swell to its highest level of record at New Orleans, LA. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
