Forecast for Western/Northwestern WI.
If you are getting sick of the very warm and humid temps we have been having you will love the forecast by the end of the week and into next weekend……Can you say upper 70s to low 80s, and dewpoints will not be as high as they have been……
Temps at 11 AM are in the 80s with 90 at EAU…..Dewpoints are well into the 60s Winds Northwest from 6 to 12 MPH with gust up to 20 MPH at times over in the Rice Lake and Ladysmith areas…
***SHORT/MIDDLE TERM FORECAST DISCUSSION***
Cold front/wind shift has pushed through all my FA this morning….This will keep pushing South/Southeast through today/tonight and should end up over central IA by 06z Tuesday…..Meanwhile a weak short-wave over SD this should really have no impact on the FA…..Cap is to strong over the FA and my neighbor’s FA……For tonight best chance of showers and storms will be found over my far Southern areas and all of my neighbor’s FA……Still could see a few showers and thunderstorms inch into my Central and Northern areas tonight….Highs today will be in the middle to upper 80s with some lower 90s…… For tomorrow….If thunderstorms make into my Central and Northern areas they should move out by afternoon….My Southern areas will remain close enough to the LLJ and moisture over running the frontal boundary down in IA to keep a good chance of showers and thunderstorms going down there….A stronger short-wave/ cold front begins it journey into the area later Tuesday night through Wednesday…..This will cause more widespread showers and thunderstorms for the entire FA….Some of the rainfall could be heavy at times throughout the entire FA. There may be a chance of some severe thunderstorms throughout my FA on Wednesday…..Still some things need to come into play for this to pan out….Will do a severe weather outlook tomorrow if needed…..Thursday through Friday will keep showers and thunderstorms around as short-wave drop Southeast in the Northwest flow we will be in…..Northwest flow will allow for temps to fall into the upper 70s to lower 80s……Looks like we are heading for below normal temps right through the need of July…..A mush welcomed break from the very warm and humid conditions we have been locked under since the middle of June…..So a little taste of fall on its way….
