I hope you are adjusting to the chilly weather as best you can! It will stay on the cool side through the weekend. We will have variably cloudy skies Friday night with lows from the mid 20s to around 30. There could be some drizzle and flurries in the far north part of the area drifting in off of Lake Superior. Winds will be light.

Saturday should be partly cloudy and tranquil with highs in the upper 40s to around 50. The winds will be light from the north or northwest around 5 mph. So overall, it should be decent for any sporting events, working out in the yard, field, or woods, or getting some hiking in. Just be dressed for the cool air!

A large low pressure system will be tracking well south of Wisconsin Sunday into early Monday. It will certainly bring clouds and gustier winds back to our area. There is a 40% chance that light rain from the system sneaks up to about Wood and Portage counties Sunday evening into Monday morning. Temperatures should top out near 51 for Sunday and Monday. Gusty east winds of 10 to 20 mph are expected with that system as well. With any luck we will catch some breaks of sunshine late Monday.

Tuesday should be pretty nice with partly cloudy skies. Highs may rebound to the upper 50s. A strong front and low pressure area will be pushing into our area Wednesday. It will bring a high chance of rain Wednesday. It will still be pretty mild with highs in the upper 50s. Gusty winds may make it feel a bit cooler though.

The storm system will slow down right on top the western Great Lakes for Thursday and that will likely keep some rain over Wisconsin. It will be breezy again and somewhat cooler with highs in the low 50s. There might be some lingering light showers into early next Friday. The rest of the day looks blustery and colder with plenty of clouds. Highs could stay in the mid 40s.

Have a great weekend! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 2:30 p.m., 22-October 2021
