Temps Monday were cooler than average, but pleasant with highs in the mid-upper 70s. Temps will warm a touch today with highs in the upper 70s to around 80º. Expect lots of sunshine this morning, then partly cloudy skies midday and into this afternoon. A weak disturbance will track south across Wisconsin and could spark a slight chance for some showers and t-storms with the prime heating of this afternoon and early evening. The main rain chances will be east of the Mississippi River.
Any showers that develop this afternoon will quickly fall apart this evening around sunset, or shortly thereafter. Otherwise expect mostly clear skies overnight and it will be another "windows open" night with morning lows in the mid-upper 50s. Favored cool spots north & east could slip into the upper 40s to low 50s.
Small rain chances (20%) will continue for Wednesday and Thursday, mainly during the prime heating of the afternoon and early evening. Many areas will remain dry with highs in the low 80s.
Looking Ahead... Slightly better chances for rain to start the month of August on Friday with highs in the low 80s. The weekend continues to look mainly dry with seasonably warm highs in the low-mid 80s.
The forecast models are then advertising a cool front to track south/east into the region Monday with a chance of showers and t-storms. The models then hint at the front stalling west to east across the region on Tuesday and Wednesday with a continued chance for scattered showers and t-storms.
Have a great Tuesday! -Bill Graul
