A fast moving front is charging into the Great Lakes today. As it passed through the area this morning, we saw some cloudy intervals and a few brief showers. Now we’re getting back into sunshine this afternoon as this disturbance moves away.

You’ve also probably noticed the wind by now... It’s not quite as strong as it was yesterday, but still, wind gusts over 30 mph are possible this afternoon. These gusty west-southwest winds will die down this evening.

The weather pattern starts to change during the second half of this week. As we tap into colder Canadian air, temperatures will begin to tumble. Highs on Friday and into the weekend will only be in the 40s. A widespread frost or a hard freeze seems likely Thursday night and into Friday morning. We also may see rain showers, mixed with wet snowflakes on Saturday. Those snow showers will be possible NORTHWEST of the Fox Valley, but it will be difficult to get significant accumulation this early in the season... Stay tuned, as details on this mixed precipitation may change as the event gets closer.
