WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - A ridge of high pressure has built into the western Great Lakes and will allow for pleasant late July weather conditions for the rest of the weekend. A starlit sky Saturday night and another one that you could open up the windows to let in some of the comfortable air outside. Lows by Sunday morning are in the mid to upper 50s in the Northwoods, to around 60 in Central Wisconsin.
Sunshine to start Sunday with some clouds mixing in during the afternoon. Breezy and a bit more humid. Highs are in the low to mid 80s. It will be a great afternoon to catch one of the last few Woodchucks games this season. A cold front will be driving ESE through the region Sunday night into early Monday morning. Scattered showers and storms are possible late Sunday evening into the overnight hours well before daybreak on Monday. No severe storms are expected, but storms could produce some downpours, brief gusty winds, and some lightning. Rainfall could range from a tenth to at most a half of an inch.
Monday will feature clouds during the morning with some sunshine developing by the afternoon. A bit cooler with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
