Clear skies for the weekend!

Public weather briefing

After what some may call an abrupt cool-down, we can expect these fall-like temperatures to stick around! Temperatures are expected to hover between the between the 40s and 60s over the next week. In addition to these temperatures, it's expected to be a bit breezy this weekend, so bundle up if making a trip to the apple orchard or to the Badger game! Clear and partly cloudy skies are expected over the weekend and into next week. However, looking into late next week, there is a possibility of some rain.


This afternoon. Sunny. High in the lower 60's.

Tonight. Clear and cool. Low in the lower 40s.

Saturday. Sunny and breezy. High in the lower 60s.

Saturday night. Clear and cool. Low in the mid-40's.

Sunday. Partly cloudy. High in the upper 50s.

Monday. Partly cloudy. High in the low 60s.

Outlook for Tuesday through Thursday. Clear Tuesday, rain is possible on Wednesday, with higher chances of rain expected Thursday. Highs in the mid to upper 60s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Lows in the 50's. [CONFIDENCE: MEDIUM]

Forecast Discussion

We are currently situated on the southern side of a high pressure system centered in Canada, which will bring easterly winds to Wisconsin. These easterly winds will keep our temperatures and weather consistent over the weekend (highs in the 50s). A new high pressure system will be in our vicinity early next week as the former system progresses further north into Canada. This will give way to more clear skies. This new system will be centered over Indiana and Ohio and will provide some southerly winds and some slightly warmer temperatures than what is expected this weekend (highs in the 60s). As this second high pressure system phases out of the Midwest, there is a potential for rainfall late next week as a low pressure system could make its way toward Wisconsin from the southwest.
