Weekend rain chances temporarily interrupt dry stretch

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

It's been another beautiful day across western Wisconsin with high pressure in control, we saw only a few scattered clouds, temperatures in the low 80s and dew points mid 50s.

We are watching our next rain chances this weekend, though, as a front approaches from the west. Thankfully those chances will hold off until Saturday afternoon, and we are expecting another comfortable, mostly clear night with lows in the upper 50s. It likely won't be as cool tonight as it was last night, when some places dipped down into the upper 40s and low 50s, but it will still be comfortable.

Saturday will start out mostly sunny, becoming partly cloudy into early afternoon. Storm chances will develop Saturday afternoon and overnight into Sunday as that front sweeps through. There won't be good support for severe weather, we could see some storms.

Scattered showers will remain likely overnight before chances gradually diminish Sunday. Rain totals will likely range from a trace to a quarter inch for most. Some areas could see more if a heavier downpour passes through.

We will see a slight uptick in humidity Saturday afternoon and evening, but we won't be seeing any uncomfortable dew points any time soon. In fact, next week will be very comfortable with basically no humidity.

Sunday will be a cooler day, though, with highs only expected to be in the low 70s. We will see dry, cool and comfortable weather continue into the upcoming week, as high pressure regains control.
