A pleasant start to August!

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) - Another morning of waking up to some foggy and hazy conditions for most across southern Wisconsin. The fog lifted out and the haze cleared away as the day progressed.

Winds were from the north, and a bit breezy with sustained speeds around 7 to 15 mph. Temperatures were very comfortable and the humidity was low as well.

North winds at the surface and aloft helped push the wildfire smoke from Canada out of the region.

It's possible we get another resurgence of smoke, hazy skies returning Tuesday.

A cold front pushed through Saturday evening/night, bringing in this 'cooler' air mass.

Temperatures are 'cooler' than average for this time of year. Highs are expected to be in the mid-70s today, just a tad cooler than Saturday's high.

Not only will it be very mild and comfortable with the temperatures, dew points will also be very comfortable! Values will remain in the low-to-mid 50s. Dry air will remain in place through the start of the week.

The first week of August looks very dry, with a decent amount of sunshine and just some high passing clouds as high pressure slowly drifts through the region.

Temperatures will remain fairly mild and in the 70s, with 80s likely returning by mid-week. Warm and humid by Friday.
