Some morning fog, then sunshine and warm. Lather, rinse, repeat as desired.

It looks like we got our week’s rainfall quota yesterday, as there’s not really any rain in the forecast for this week.  A large area of high pressure will be moving across Wisconsin over the next couple of days, with sunshine and warm temperatures can be expected. The next storm system on Thursday may get pushed north into Canada as Tropical Storm Isaac moves inland, so you can expect the nice weather to linger through the week and into this weekend. We may get back to near 90 degrees on Thursday and Friday, too. With September arriving on Saturday, there won’t be many more days of this hot weather left this year, so enjoy it while you can. Or stay inside with the A/C on. Your choice.

Extended Outlook:

Conditions: We’re looking to stay dry and warm right through the weekend. Our only chance at some rain may come on Sunday, depending on Isaac’s final path. It wouldn’t be the first time Wisconsin has gotten wind and rain from a former hurricane, but as of now the weather models are expecting it to curve east as it passes through Illinois.

High Temperatures: Generally in the 80s, although a few places might get near 90 on Thursday and Friday, and other spots may struggle to hit 80 this weekend.

Extended Forecast Confidence: Medium
