Updated Friday, August 22, 2014 at 7:44 AM...
Low clouds & fog will be the rule in many areas this morning. Some spots could see visibilities reduced to a 1/4 mile or less, especially across higher terrain and on the ridge tops. The fog should mix out by about 9 or 10AM. If you encounter dense fog, be sure to slow down and turn on your headlights so others can see you.
Once the fog mixes out this morning, expect a mix of clouds and sun today. A stalled boundary to our south could spark a few isolated storms this afternoon in our far southern/eastern counties... down towards the Wisconsin River valley.
Our above average temps will continue right through the weekend. Expect highs today in the mid-upper 80s, mid 80s Saturday and upper 80s to near 90º on Sunday. It will also remain humid through the weekend with dew points in the upper 60s to mid 70s. This could cause heat indices (or what it feels like) well into the 90s, perhaps even close to 100º in some spots. There will be some chances for showers and t-storms, but most areas should stay dry today and Sunday (rain chances 20% or less)... with scattered storms possible Saturday (about a 40% chance).
Looking Ahead... It will remain fairly warm and humid to start next week with highs Monday and Tuesday in the low-mid 80s. Disturbances and a frontal boundary will keep periodic chances for showers and t-storms in the forecast through about Wednesday morning. Drier and slightly cooler air then looks to move into the region from the northwest for the second half of the week... knocking highs into the pleasant mid-upper 70s.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend! -Bill Graul
