Chris Johnson's Forecast | Showers and storms set to increase

USED171005 08 St. Alphonse Church Callander

We're tracking the chance for showers around the Monday time frame, but at this point it doesn't look like a deluge. With abundant sunshine, a light northwest breeze, and dry weather, temperatures will climb into the lower 80s for most of the state.

A cold front moved southeast through our region Monday. Overnight lows will fall into the lower 60s. We will still see some veiled sunshine through the morning and temperatures return to around 70 in the afternoon under a mostly cloudy sky.

Expect clear skies and cool temperatures Wednesday night with overnight lows in the upper 50s.

Saturday: Early clouds, fog then becoming partly cloudy, warm and muggy.

Cooler air and more clouds will build in for Friday as a "wedge" sets up. Milder temperatures are expected Sunday with highs in the 70s. This will begin tomorrow with slightly drier air and readings only a few degrees cooler. There should be a decent amount of moisture associated with the front and that means there will be a good chance for showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm or two.

Friday will end up seasonably cool too, with forecast high temps in the mid to upper 60s.

Partly cloudy skies and above normal temperatures should be back for Thursday.

We saw a handsome Tuesday with much lower humidity, but well-above seasonable temperatures. Springfield will be on the line resulting in peeks of afternoon sun and highs in the low 60s.
