  • 76°

Another warm and breezy day is on tap for Southern Wisconsin with highs in the mid 70s. Nearly 20 degrees above average once again! A cold front will approach tonight, bringing a line of showers and embedded t-storms to western sections first (10pm-12am), then to central and eastern areas overnight. This line will likely weaken as it trudges east. Scattered showers will persist through the morning on Sunday, ending in the east by mid-afternoon. While most areas will only pick up .10 to .33" of rainfall, some areas closer to the Mississippi River could see .75 to 1.00", with most of that falling tonight. Highs in the low 60s will be met in the morning, with steady or falling temps thereafter behind the cold front.

After a quiet and seasonably mild day in the mid 60s on Monday, a secondary cold front will barge in Monday night, setting the stage for a MUCH cooler Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will struggle to reach the low 50s, and a raw breeze will make it feel more like the 40s anyway. Additionally, a few chilly showers can't be ruled out on either day.

The forecast gets tricky later in the week. As of this writing, we're forecasting milder temps with a chance for showers. This could certainly change, so you're encouraged to hold tight and stay tuned!
