Summer Heat to Fall Chill

Temperatures the past couple of days have stayed in the low to mid 70's thanks to an abundance of cloud cover and rain.  But a shifting wind following a warm front late Wednesday night will give temperatures quite a boost, back into the upper 80's and low 90's Thursday afternoon.

Winds will increase from the southwest on Thursday, gusting at times near 30 mph.  Temperatures will remain very warm Thursday evening ahead of a cold front that will bring strong to severe thunderstorms over Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa during the evening Thursday. Once the front passes early Friday, winds will shift around to the northwest, gusting once again near 30 mph.  Temperatures early Friday will start off mild but then quickly fall back into the upper 60's by the afternoon.  Overnight lows Friday night will drop back into the 40's.

Highs over the weekend will feel more like fall - averaging the low 70's Saturday and Sunday.  An even bigger cool down is possible, though, towards the end of next week!
