Wind sticks around, temps to yo-yo

MADISON (WKOW) — The “wind-machine” woke up Tuesday afternoon and will stay stuck in the *on* position through Thursday.

Wisconsin will sit squarely between low pressure to the north and high pressure to the south on Wednesday, resulting in another breezy day. Starting around mid-morning, expect sustained west winds at 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

FutureTrack projected sustained winds Wednesday afternoon

These winds will also pull in some cooler air with highs restricted to the lower 70s. The good news? There will be no shortage of sunshine.

An approaching cold front on Thursday will keep it breezy for a third-straight day, but a southwesterly wind flow will allow temps to touch 80° by afternoon. This front might also trigger a few isolated storms in the late afternoon and evening, something we’ll be keeping an eye on.

Friday looks quiet, followed by some rain chances for Labor Day Weekend. Get the details in your 27 Storm Track extended forecast!
