Cooler weather is on the way to the start of the new week. A cold front will be pushing across the region on Sunday morning. Clouds will increase during the morning and those clouds will stick around through the afternoon. Winds will be brisk out of the northwest, which will lead to a risk of snow showers across the far north later in the afternoon into Sunday evening. Lake effect snow locations in the north could have some minor accumulations Sunday night into Monday morning, while locations south of Highway 8 might just have a passing flurry or snow shower. About 15° degrees chillier on Sunday in the area with highs in the mid to upper 30s.

A dry weather pattern will set up across the Badger State for the rest of the week with a fair amount of sunshine and highs rising from the mid 30s Tuesday, to the upper 30s Wednesday, then low 40s for Thursday through the start of next weekend on Saturday. Enjoy the quiet and relatively mild weather while it lasts. This is Wisconsin after all and things will go downhill with the temperatures, while wintry precipitation will be here sooner than later in the month ahead.
