Cool spell brings a taste of fall

The kids are heading back to school and the days are getting shorter. The air feels cool and crisp when you wake up in th

e morning. These are all signs fall is right around the corner.

Frost advisories were posted this morning for Upper Michigan with overnight lows plunging to near freezing in some spots. This is typical north of the border for this time of year. A lot of locations in southeastern Wisconsin dropped into the 40s and 50s overnight.

This dry, cool weather pattern will continue for a while behind a Canadian High. Highs look to only jump into the mid and upper 60s today. This is only the fourth time the highs will stay below 70 degrees so far this summer (meteorological summer June 1st-August 31st). It doesn’t look like it will change for the next week or so. The Climate Prediction Center has placed a big chunk of the U.S. under “below average temperatures” for the next 6-10 days. This does include most of Wisconsin.

So, if you’re looking for warm up, you might have to wait a little while. The next chance to get above normal will not be until late next week!
