Today's Almanac

Despite high pressure in control, we just weren’t able to scrape the clouds out of the area. It was also a chilly day, with highs mainly in the 30s to lower 40s.

Tonight's Lows North

Tonight's Lows South

As we head into tonight, look for the high to slide east. It will finally take the clouds with it. As southerly breezes take over, look for a somewhat milder night as lows only fall into the 20s to near 30.

Tomorrow's Forecast

Tomorrow's Highs South

Tomorrow's High North

High pressure to our east will combine with a frontal system to our west. As a result, we’ll see south winds ramp up once again over the region. Expect gusts between 35 and 40 mph, especially in open areas and area ridge tops. However, we will also see a warmer day as temperatures top out in the middle 40s to lower 40s. We should also see a fair amount of sunshine.

Tomorrow night will remain breezy and mild under a few clouds. Look for lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s..

An approaching cool front will pump even warmer air into the region Thursday. Look for highs to range from 55 to 65 degrees! The trade off will be a bit more in the way of cloud cover. This cool front will track through the area late Thursday, but it should come through dry.

Friday will be a bit cooler behind the front. We can expect highs to fall back into the middle 40s to lower 50s. This is still a bit above normal for November.

8 Day Forecast

Looking ahead… the weekend forecast will hinge on where Thursday’s cool front stalls. The reason is a low pressure system will ride along the front and bring a chance of rain or rain and snow Saturday. If the front stalls farther south, higher precipitation chances will get shunted over Missouri, Iowa and parts of Illinois. If the front stalls farther north, higher precipitation would then fall across parts of our area. So far, the models are leaning more toward  a southern solution. But, we’ll have to watch things carefully as this weekend is the gun deer opener in Wisconsin. This system will exit the region Sunday, but we could still see some lingering rain and snow showers. Look for highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s both Saturday and Sunday.

We’ll start the new workweek on a dry and seasonable note. Look for a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the lower 40s Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will get a bit of a  bump into the middle and upper 40s by next Wednesday.

Have a great night! -WKBT Cory Malles
