High pressure remained in control across the Great Lakes region
Sunday, bringing abundant sunshine across Wisconsin. The copious
amounts of sunshine helped increase temperatures to well above
normal values across the state as some locations saw highs 10 to
15 degrees above normal. Highs ranged mainly from the upper 70s
and lower 80s, with lower 70s along the Great Lakes areas. Winds
were mainly light and variable.
High pressure brought mostly clear skies and light winds to
Wisconsin overnight. Low temperatures ranged from the mid and
upper 40s northeast, to the low and mid 50s far west.
Showers and thunderstorms will be likely at times through this
week as multiple low pressure systems move through the region.
This first round will move into the northwest by late
afternoon, with chances spreading southeastward during the
evening and overnight.
Above normal temperatures are expected this week, though cooler
temperatures are possible at times near the Great Lakes.
