Are you ready for autumn? Fall officially arrives at 8:03 this evening. As summer slips away, we’ll have a cool north breeze. Temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler than average with highs not far from 60 degrees.

Skies partly cloudy across the area this afternoon. Spotty showers in northern Door County and Menominee County, Michigan are ending. We’ll be dry as high pressure takes aim at the Great Lakes.

With clear and calmer weather tonight, temperatures will tumble back into the 30s. It will be cold enough for areas of frost to develop, especially across the Northwoods. Even farther south in low-lying areas and climatologically cool spots, gardeners should play it safe and protect cold-sensitive plants. Don’t be surprised when the National Weather Service issues a Frost Advisory for parts of northeast Wisconsin later today.

Otherwise, the cooler 60s will last into early next week. To the surprise of nobody, unsettled weather will arrive this weekend. Saturday will have periods of light rain, with another chance of showers on Sunday. A few more passing showers could glide by late on Monday.
