Seasonal temps on the horizon after long stretch of cool temps

After a blistering hot start to the month with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s, temps have generally been well below normal ever since a strong cold front moved through last Monday.

In fact, Milwaukee has been cooler than 60° since last Monday when temperatures dropped from 71° at 6:52pm to 55° at 7:12pm with the passage of that strong cold front. 

That stretch of nearly 9 days below 60° is fairly impressive considering our average high this time of year is in the mid 60s. As of noon today, a lake breeze has kicked in with temperatures hovering in the upper 50s in Milwaukee. 

This cooler airmass that has been in place for the last week and a half is finally pushing east with more seasonal temps in the 60s expected for the second half of the week into the weekend.

Temperatures will also start to be warmer at night. After a widespread frost last night, nearly all of the area should remain warm enough to remain frost free tonight. There is only a small chance the typical cold spots like Burlington, Beaver Dam, and West Bend dip down into the mid 30s.

Low temps will be in the 40s as we head into the weekend. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather App to see when we may see our next chance of rain.
