Frost Advisory: Killing frost expected overnight

It was another cool day across southeast Wisconsin with highs in the low to mid 50s after starting the day in the mid 30s to low 40s.

Clouds and a light breeze prevented frost from forming last night, but clear skies and nearly calm winds will allow for widespread frost tonight. A Frost Advisory has been issued for all of southeast Wisconsin through 8am Monday. 

This will likely be a hard, killing frost away from the lake as temps drop to or close to the freezing mark. The warmer waters of Lake Michigan will keep temps between 35-38° lakeside, so what frost does form will be light near the lake. Make sure you cover any plants or bring them inside!

Breezy southwest winds will help temps warm back into the low 60s Monday and mid to upper 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. A cold front moves through Wednesday and will drop temps close to normal on Thursday, but highs rebound back into the low 70s by Friday.

The warmer weather could last through next weekend. The Climate Prediction Center's 6 to 10 day temperature outlook has a 70% chance of above normal temperatures across the Badger State into early next week.
