Wisconsin has some of its coolest days ever for mid-July

You might be turning on your furnace instead of your air conditioner this weekend.

Parts of Wisconsin had their coldest high temperatures ever for July 16, and forecasters say more of the same is possible at least through Saturday.

The National Weather Service says the mercury might not hit 60 today in parts of northwest Wisconsin.

The south may not see the 70s until Saturday and it could be Tuesday before we see 80 again.

The afternoon high in Rhinelander Thursday was just 66 degrees, and that broke a 98-year record for the coldest high reading.

The same thing happened in Marshfield, where the high of 71 tied the cool mark set in 1958.

La Crosse is having its coldest July since 1972. The average temperature there was just under 69 degrees since the start of the month, almost five degrees below normal.

A new low pressure is moving across Wisconsin today.

Forecasters predict a cloudy Friday and Saturday, with occasional sprinkles or light rain.

Sunnier skies are predicted for Sunday. And by Monday, temperatures could be close to normal again.
