Winds ramp up Wednesday with unseasonable warmth to continue

Sunrise seen here over Suttons Bay with a few jet contrails taken by RJ Loeher. Winds will increase out of the southwest later Wednesday.

The main story in weather is a continuation of above normal temperatures for the next several day along with zero chance for any rain until at least the second half of the weekend as the weather remains very quiet for mid-October.

While the weather will be warm Wednesday, the winds are going to ramp up and become quite gusty by mid to late afternoon into the evening hours. Low pressure passing over Central Canada will lead to increasing winds across our area out of the southwest. Winds will increase with gusts ranging in the 25-35 mph range. Unseasonably warm with temperatures ranging from 63-71F.

It will cool down somewhat Thursday as a cold front will pass Wednesday night. That front will pass through dry with just a little increase in clouds overnight Wednesday. Any clouds again give way to sunshine Thursday. Not as warm Thursday (but still above normal) with highs from 60-64F with a west wind.

We warm right back into the upper-60's to mid-70's Friday/Saturday with dry weather setting up a nice start to the weekend to view some fall color.

The next chance for rain will not get into our area until Sunday when a cold front passes. At least some rain expected Sunday with showers hanging around into part of Monday/Tuesday along with cooler temperatures as we fall back off into the 50's early next week.
