Finally, a break from the rain!
Southeastern and southern Wisconsin saw historic rainfall the last three weeks with round after round of showers and thunderstorms. Since August 16th, some locations received over a foot of rainfall. Flooding, swollen rivers, washed out roads, mudslides, and severe weather plagued the region with high levels of moisture and favorable weather dynamics.
The pattern switches as an expansive area of high pressure jumps into the picture. This will dry us out, usher in cooler temperatures, and send the humidity way south. A taste of fall will be in the air with highs only in the 60s the next few days, with our warmer locations in the lower 70s. There were even Frost Advisories for northern Minnesota this morning with those folks seeing lows down in the 20s and 30s.
The Climate Prediction Center does have most of the Midwest under an “above average chance to see warmer than normal temperatures” starting next week. Highs will go above average with temps in the 70s to almost 80.
