Wisconsin Weather Update for June 16, 2008.

By: HaleStorm , 11:36 AM GMT on June 16, 2008

Good Monday morning!

Weather Synopsis
After a somewhat settled-down weekend with only a few scattered thunderstorms across Wisconsin (some of which were severe in southern Wisconsin Saturday afternoon), we're going to settle into an even more settled weather pattern. Temperatures will be slightly cooler for the first half of the week courtesy of a cold front which passed through yesterday, but besides an outside shot at an isolated thunderstorm here and there, most of this week should remain dry. We'll warm up through the 70s in the second half of the work week and then into the 80s for what could be a great weekend of weather in Wisconsin.

Today’s Forecast Grade: B
