Fall officially arrives, weather no exception

CREATED Sep 22, 2012
  • Print

This first official weekend of fall will definitely feel like it, highs all weekend will struggle to high 60 degrees.  We start off Saturday with another round of cold rain, after a few thunderstorms that brought some small hail earlier this morning, but most of this activity should pass out of southeast Wisconsin by noon.  Skies will start to clear from west to east this afternoon but even with the sun working through it will feel cold due to a breezy NW wind gusting to 30 mph.  Skies continue to clear tonight and temperatures will drop into the 30s because of it.  Patchy frost is possible, especially inland areas where overnight lows will be right around freezing, cover up sensitive plants and vegetables.

Sunday will be the better day of the weekend with more sunshine but it will be another crisp, fall day with highs in the upper 50s.  Another frosty night is possible Sunday night as lows will again be in the low 30s away from the lakefront.  Warmer weather returns on Monday with a SW wind kicking up at 10-20 mph, driving temperatures back up into the mid-60s with sunshine.  Tuesday will be the pick day with mostly sunny skies and a high right around 70 degrees before mid-60s return for Wednesday with a chance for a spotty shower.
