Skies quickly clear tonight, and temperatures will tumble into the 30s. A FROST ADVISORY has been posted for areas NORTHWEST of the Fox Valley. Gardeners who decided to get an early jump on their spring gardens, may want to cover up tender, cold-sensitive plants. Patchy frost may also develop outside the frost advisory in low-lying and typically cooler spots.

A few more bouts of frost are possible through the weekend with more lows in the 30s. Meanwhile, our highs will be mostly in the 50s through this weekend. The bottom line is that our weather is looking a little cooler than normal through at least Mother’s Day... It’s likely these below normal temperatures will stick around until the middle of May.

In terms of rain chances, much of the daytime hours this week will be dry. Look for more sunshine on Wednesday, but there will be a chance for showers overnight... especially from the Fox Cities southward. A few of those showers may hang on through Thursday morning, and a spotty afternoon sprinkle remains possible. There could be a shower Friday. This weekend’s rain higher chances should generally be confined to southern Wisconsin - But it might be a close call. Keep checking back as the weekend approaches.
