General Weather Discussion for the Week Ahead

Our nice stretch of weather will continue today with plenty of sunshine and temperatures expected to rise in the mid 80s. A large ridge of high pressure remains in control of our weather with the main storm track to our south.

Even though ninety percent of the weekend looks fine, there may be an isolated shower or storm for a time Sunday afternoon or evening. This will be out ahead of a front with a better probability of rain staying to our north across Wisconsin.

There are signs that the front will camp out to the south of our region through much of the week with nice weather expected on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure builds back in from the northwest. Perhaps Monday will be the stormiest day of the week as some t-storms may produce dangerous lightning, heavy downpours and gusty winds over parts of northern Illinois.

There are signs that the front will push back north as a warm front by the end of the week with showers and t-storms moving back into the region as early as July 15 and July 16.

It will certainly feel like summer with temperatures averaging a little above normal with daily lows in the mid 60s and daily highs in the mid to upper 80s. Heat index values at times will feel like the low to mid 90s.

Your Weekly Weather Fact: The average high temperature for this time of year is 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The average low temperature is 62 degrees Fahrenheit.
