Another warm, beautiful fall day is expected today. High temperatures will be near 70 degrees. Much of Wednesday will be nice with highs near 70 once again, but showers will move into the area during the evening, especially overnight into Thursday. Cooler weather is expected the second half of the week, with occasional chances for a few showers.
Yesterday we had a high temp of 67.5° with 100% sunshine. The low was 37.9° with clear skies. We had a nearly full moon lighting the landscape last night, the low thus far is 42°.
I pulled my snowblower out to the middle of the shed where it is available for use (which it hasn’t had much of a workout in the past few years). I am still mowing the grass which is still growing at a rapid rate. Below are the average snow dates for the area.
-- Warmer than normal Temperatures through Wednesday -- A large upper level ridge will continue to build over the region today and dominate the weather pattern through Wednesday. Accompanying this pattern will be warmer than normal temperatures highs today and tomorrow that will be upwards of 10 to 15 degrees above normal. The ridge will flatten as a large upper level low enters the midwest moving across Wisconsin Wednesday afternoon. -- Showers, maybe some thunder late Wednesday through Thursday -- Winds will shift from light and variable to breezy from the southwest Wednesday afternoon. Moister flow, along with warm air advection Will allow for showers to be possible Wednesday afternoon and evening. Given the warm air for this time of year, along with that will be a decent low level jet which could allow enough shear for thunderstorms Wednesday evening into Thursday. A line of showers and storms will move through into Thursday. Latest models have a short wave trough moving through Thursday afternoon which could bring another round of showers and storms. This cold front will usher in colder, breezier and overall more fall like weather. -- Cooler weather starts Friday -- A long wave trough from Canada will dominate the pattern into the weekend with several short waves propagating through the Great Lakes bringing a chance of precipitation Friday and Saturday. Highs will be in the 50s Friday and through the weekend. This is just below normal. There is a potential warm up into next week.
