Tom Skilling's 7-Day forecast


Thursday, July 10
Eminently comfortable Canadian air is in place and to remain in place into Friday.
Exceedingly light wind regimes, such as the one currently in place, permits localized east to northeast lake breezes to take hold. Generous sunshine mixes with some cottony summertime cumulus clouds late morning and Thursday afternoon. Afternoon highs reach the upper 70s to around 80-degrees inland, but a light easterly lake breeze keeps readings at the beaches and along the lakefront in the upper 60s to lower 70s. The day's initially light northerly winds veer northeast to east winds 5 to 14 mph, particularly in and near area beaches. Peak daytime high temps range from 70 coolest lakeshore locations to low 80s inland. Becoming mainly clear, continuing a bit cool for the season Thursday night. Normal nighttime low temps this time of year are around 64-degree.
Friday, July 11
A mix of clouds and sun yields to more extensive cloudiness in the afternoon.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms develop in the overnight hours. Southerly winds 11 to 23 mph.
Saturday, July 12
Warmer with noticeably higher humidities.
