Cooler Weekend But Warm Up Next Week

After a long stretch of warmer than average weather we will experience a cooler than average weekend before we bounce right back above average next week.


Just two of the past 24 days have been below average. June started out with twelve straight days above average. Yesterday was the only day this month below average. So far June is running about 7.5° above average.


A cool breeze off the lake will keep our highs nearly 10° below average. This time of the year we should see highs near 80°. Some spots tonight west and southwest of the city could fall into the 40s for lows.


The brisk wind off the lake will also churn up waves around 4 to 6 feet. A beach hazards statement has been issued for Lake Michigan's shoreline for those big waves and strong rip currents.

I can't rule out a spotty shower late this afternoon and into the evening hours mainly west and southwest of the city as an upper level impulse of energy slides south out of Wisconsin. Aside from that though, we are in for a long stretch of dry weather through possibly all of next week.

Today will be the coolest day we see for some time to come. We will see a warm up through at least Thursday next week as highs climb back into the middle to upper 80s. Fridays highs will be 20° warmer than today.

The longer range forecast has us outlooked for above average temperatures overall from June 18th through the 22nd. We are then outlooked for below average temperatures overall towards the end of the month.



Here is my 7 day forecast:

Today: Partly to mostly sunny, breezy, spotty shwr late? High: 68 (62 Lakefront)


Sunday: Sunny, mild & pleasant Low: 51 High: 73 (65 Lakefront)

Monday: Sunny skies Low: 54 High: 78 (68 Lakefront)


Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, pm showers & thunderstorms Low: 61 High: 85 (81 Lakefront)

Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 65 High: 86 (83 Lakefront)

Thursday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 67 High: 87 (84 Lakefront)

Friday: Partly cloudy, sct. t-storm? Low: 68 High: 86 (83 Lakefront)
