WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Before heading into the official start of the fall season this weekend, a late summer season warm-up arrives starting Wednesday.
Much of the same for Thursday. A mix of sun and clouds with highs still running to the low 80s for North Central Wisconsin. It is possible for some scattered rain to develop over parts of the region Thursday afternoon or evening, but plan for more dry hours than wet.
A cold front is set to approach the state Friday, and moving through by Saturday. Clouds gradually increasing Friday. Highs will still be warm, but clouds likely keeping highs around the mid to upper 70s. Scattered showers and possibly some scattered thunderstorms Friday night.
Rain chances to continue over the weekend, both Saturday and Sunday. Rain likely scattered. The weekend won’t be a washout, but there will be times of rain through Sunday as the cold front flows in. Low to mid-70s Saturday for the first official day of the fall season. Highs will fall to the upper 60s Sunday afternoon. Much of next work week will feature seasonable highs mid to upper 60s.
