A More Active Weather Pattern Ahead
The first Monday of the month is looking pretty decent. We're hanging onto a little sun and by the afternoon, temps will approach 60 degrees. Today, however, is going to be the nicest day over the next 10 days. The jet stream is lining up to drag in our next storm system by this evening. Fortunately we're warm enough that this system will only provide rain showers, and accumulations will be modest at a tenth to quarter of an inch. As showers wrap up early tomorrow, we'll feel west winds kick in. Temps on Tuesday will reach the lower and middle 50's, which is average for this time of the year. But, it will be a noticeably cooler day and it's just the start of the downward tumble on temperatures here across southeast Wisconsin as the jetsream struggles to hang on to its summer pattern or succumb to its cooler winter position. As it wobbles back and forth, we'll have several opportunities for wet weather in the days ahead. Another weather system arrives Thursday and a third system is set to arrive Saturday. These next two storms come when highs are only expected to get into the 40's and lows will be closer to the freezing mark. That will lead to a wintry mix of precipitation. Beyond that we could also be looking at some of the coldest air this fall season. As of now, high temperatures through early next week may not move out of the 30's. It is time folks to dig out that winter gear, you will need it!
