Weather blog: A taste of fall on the way, more like winter for some

Posted at 9:26 AM, Sep 05, 2020

High temperatures will remain in the 70s across Southeast Wisconsin for the next few days, but a pattern change is ahead.

Next week, a dip in the jet stream will allow cold, arctic air to move south, bringing the first wave of fall weather for many places across the country. As a cold front progresses across the plains and into the Midwest, the wave of cool air will have lots of folks reaching for sweaters!


Looking at temperatures early next week, notice the split in readings, north of the front highs will only be in the 50s, while south of the front warm and humid air will remain in place.


Late Monday or Tuesday the front will make it across Wisconsin, and high temperatures for our area will struggle to reach 60-degrees by Tuesday.


It appears temperatures will remain below average, with highs only in the 60s, through the end of the week.

But 60s will feel warm compared to some places out west. The Rocky Mountains from Montana to Colorado will likely see a few inches of snow early to mid next week!
