...Warm With Very Low Sprinkle/Shower Chances Today...

.DISCUSSION...Temperatures again will be very mild today with
highs in the 60s to low 70s and RH dropping to around 25 to 35
percent across much of the area. A cold front will move south
today with winds becoming northerly and gusting to around 20 mph
for a time this afternoon. A few showers or sprinkles cannot be
ruled out this afternoon and early evening, especially over
central Wisconsin, but any amounts would be quite light.

After a dry Wednesday, another cold front will move through on
Thursday with a chance for showers. Otherwise, generally dry
conditions are expected through the weekend.
