WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-25-20 Today will be one of the warmest days this week and very possibly our final 80 degree day of 2020. A strong southerly flow will return to the region following the passage of a warm front early in the morning. Partly sunny skies during the day will allow for a quick warm up and afternoon highs in the low 80′s. As we head into the late afternoon and evening, we’ll need to keep an eye on a cold front approaching from the west. Showers will be possible along the front as it moves through though many areas may not see rain at all, especially south of the Chippewa Valley. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will be present behind the front and will carry over into Saturday. Our wind will changeover to a west-northwesterly direction behind the front and we’ll have to adjust to slightly cooler weather at the start of the weekend. Between the wind and overall cloudier morning skies, temperatures will rise a bit slower through the morning. In the afternoon however, temperatures may get a boost from a southerly wind ahead of another quick moving low pressure system. This will be enough to kick our temperatures back into the mid 70′s.
