A sunny and warm start to the work week is in the forecast. Monday will feature plenty of sun with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The only exception will be near the water of the bay and Lake Michigan. You will notice a slight increase in the humidity as well. Winds will be out of the south at 5-15 mph.

Tropical Storm Cristobal which moved on shore Sunday will bring an interesting stretch of weather to the state of Wisconsin Tuesday and Wednesday. This official track from the National Hurricane Center has the track of Cristobal moving right through Wisconsin. This system will bring rain to the area beginning Tuesday and more rain and wind expected Wednesday. This system will no longer be considered a Tropical Storm by this point, but unsettled weather is still anticipated. Highs will go from the 80s Tuesday to 70s Wednesday. Below shows the potential track and rainfall through Wednesday.

Heavy rain could lead to flooding especially Tuesday night and Wednesday. Rainfall totals through this two day stretch could exceed 1.5″ for most of the area. Along with the wind, strong winds Wednesday could gust over 35 mph.

A few showers will linger on Thursday with breezy conditions and highs in the lower 70s. We could be stuck in the 60s Friday with a mix of sun and clouds. An early look at the weekend shows dry conditions with highs in the lower 70s.
