Skies will be mostly sunny today, but Western wildfire smoke in the upper atmosphere will continue to filter the sunlight. The smoke is above 15,000 feet in the sky, so we do not expect any air quality issues here in Wisconsin. It’s warm and windy today with highs into the upper 70s and a southwest wind gusting to 35 mph.

That’s about 10 degrees above average for the middle of September. You may also notice a touch of humidity, but it won’t be all that bad... at least compared to much of this summer! A cold front will approach the area from the north tonight. Clouds will increase, and a mild night can be expected ahead of the front. Lows will generally stay in the 60s.

As the front passes on Wednesday, you’ll notice more cloud cover than today. A stray shower is possible, but most of us will be dry. It won’t be quite as windy, but highs should still be in the mid 70s. It does turn cooler behind the front. High temperatures will fall back to near 60 degrees Thursday through Saturday. It looks like it will be cold enough early Friday and Saturday mornings for more frost across the Northwoods. Temperatures begin to warm back up late in the weekend with highs back into the 70s next week.
