The forecast for Western & Northwestern WI

Nice warm dry forecast…Temps should be above normal for this time of year, with dry conditions….This will lead to a fire danger…. Next chance of showers comes in for the weekend,looks slim as or right now…..

The mild and dry conditions will camp out over the FA this week and next week. Does look like a weather pattern chance is in store for the end of the long term forecast.


At 7 AM temps range from the middle 30s North to the middle 40s South and West….Skies are clear with light to calm winds….Some fog being reported at a few stations.


Sure is not much to talk about in this period… Large ridge of high pressure will camp out over the area this week…. This will allow for dry and mild conditions to preside through week….Upper level ridge is forecasted to push off to the Southeast of the FA this weekend, this will allow for a weak system to move into the FA for this weekend….Will have a slight chance of showers for Sat night through Monday…. Still may pull this out of the FA,unless we can get better moisture flow back into the area. With the dry conditions forecasted fire danger will be on the increase….Winds don’t appear to be a problem, which will be a good thing….

TUESDAY and TUESDAY NIGHT..... Sunny highs 70 to 75. Lows 45 to 50 under clear skies.

Once again not much to talk about here…. Once the weak system clears the area Monday, a large area of high pressure is forecasted to move back overhead setting the stages for another dry and mild period… There are singles in the long term models that a pattern chance is on its way for the end of this cycle. A strong cold front is forecasted to move into and through the area on the 16th/17th time frame.This is forecasted to draw colder air back into the FA… The 540 line sets up well to our West/Northwest so no snow is forecasted!!.
