WLDY-WJBL NEWS 10-13-20 Behind a cold front look for lots of sunshine today. West to northwest winds will increase again 15-20 mph with highs reaching the low 60′s. The fast flow will continue, with yet another system sliding through the Northern Plains and into the state on Wednesday. Clouds will increase out ahead of this system, making for a mainly cloudy sky during the day. Low pressure is forecast to track over the northern half of Wisconsin, where the best rain chances will pass, though we will still have a chance to see a few showers in the Chippewa Valley. Another breezy day is likely with highs around 60. Much cooler air will be arriving behind this departing system, making for a chilly finish to the work week with colder days and nights. An upper trough will deepen over the north-central states as Canadian air takes over. We will already begin to feel the changes by Thursday with afternoon highs only around 50, about 10 degrees below average.
