Why not enjoy an October warm up? We will soak up the Vitamin D under mostly sunny skies today and breezy southwest winds gusting up to 25mph. This will pump our high temperatures into the low to mid 70s, away from Lake Michigan.

An area of low pressure sweeps through Wednesday with scattered showers and storms expected to last until Thursday late morning. Highs will be only in the lower 60s and falling into the 50s by the weekend, with gusty NE winds developing.

The first widespread frost is likely this weekend, Thursday night - Sunday morning.
