Can…can I say the word? Summer?

Wisconsin River Weather Forecast early August 2019

I haven’t seen a forecast this good in a long, long time. Aside from great weather to be outside in, this dry sunny stretch should really help drive down those recent high water levels to their late summer lows. I’d expect sandbars to be out in force by roughly Wednesday (though we’ve already got a fair number out there) and if this keeps up, they’ll be classically large (like football field or bigger large) by the coming weekend (Aug 3/4).

If those light easterly winds stay in the forecast, we’re on track for a 10 out of 10 weekend and we definitely haven’t had one of those yet this year. This coming weeklong stretch is by far the best overall conditions we’ve had all year.
