UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) It's supposed to be cooler today in southern Wisconsin, but it will still be well above normal for early September. In Milwaukee, yesterday's low of 78 was four-degrees warmer than the normal high for the date of 74. It got up to 95 in Milwaukee yesterday afternoon, 21-degrees above the norm.
Meanwhile parts of northwest Wisconsin never got out of the 70's, as a cold front moved into that region. The front moved slowly across southeast Wisconsin overnight, bringing some much-needed rain to many areas. Scattered showers are expected to continue this morning in far southern Wisconsin -- and there's a slight chance for rain this afternoon in the north.
Folks near Lake Superior should see another mild day in the 70's. Eighty-and-higher is predicted for the rest of the Badger State -- but no 90's are in the forecast for a change. Once the front passes, a major cooling trend is in the offing, with highs expected in the 60's-and-70's through the weekend.
