MADISON (WKOW) – Temperatures will feel more like the fourth of July than the middle of September.
A ridge of high pressure is building over the Midwest allowing a late-season heat dome to set up. Temps will stay consistently about 10° above average through this week and then around 2-5° above average next week.
Overnight will be mild in the low 60s with low 80s returning by Wednesday afternoon.
An area of low pressure will develop from the northwest allowing a few storms possibly returning Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
As that boundary lingers in the Upper Midwest, a few more storms will be possible on Friday with a higher chance as the cold front slips by Saturday; storm chances will increase Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning before quiet weather returns.
Temps stay warm through Saturday in the upper 70s to mid 80s. By Sunday, we turn a bit milder, though still above average in the mid 70s.
Fall begins Monday, fairly seasonal with temps in the low to mid 70s.
Average highs this time of year are in the low 70s and average lows are around 60°.
