Remaining cool, but mainly dry for the second half of the week
This morning was one of our coldest so far across southeast Wisconsin with temperatures in the mid 20s to low 30s and wind chills in the teens.
We've been stuck in this cooler weather pattern for the better part of the last week and a half. The last time temperatures were above normal was on Saturday the 17th. Currently October is running 1.8 degrees below normal.
Even though temps will make a run at 50° this afternoon, it's still around 5 degrees below normal for this time of year. Winds turn back to the north to end the work week, cooling temps back into the 40s before breezy southwest winds warm temps closer to normal on Halloween.
The northeast winds Thursday morning could trigger a few sprinkles or light drizzle near the lake, while more sunshine is expected well inland.
Dry weather returns Friday and throughout most of Halloween. We can't rule out an isolated light shower or two Halloween night, but right now it looks to be after any trick or treat activities. After a cooldown to start next week, above normal temperatures could work back into the area by the middle of next week.
The 8 to 14 day outlook shows a 40-50% chance of above normal temps from November 4th-10th. By then our average high is 52°. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather App to see the complete 10 day forecast.
