A dome of stable weather building into our region will lead to abundant sunshine today and Friday. A rather strong pressure gradient will also send our winds surging out of the Southwest boosting our temperatures about 15 degrees above average. Readings should rise to 90 degrees or above for the final days of August. That should be enough to counter the midmonth cool-down and make the month officially about a degree warmer than average. With no rain expected before the weekend, the drought persists, as well. August ends with a deficit of about an inch of rain for the month. We're 4 inches below what we should've seen in rain guages for the Summer, based on measurements at Mitchell International, the official reporting site for Southeast Wisconsin.
Have a great Thursday!
