Ryder Cup crowds should stay mostly dry this week, but they’ll want to bring a jacket as cooler, fall temperatures set in.

There’s a chance for rain Thursday morning and into the afternoon as a low-pressure system moves over Lake Michigan, according to the National Weather Service in Milwaukee. The weather pattern could lead to light precipitation Thursday into Friday afternoon.

“There’s going to be a cold front passing through, but low-level moisture is pretty low. You might see a sprinkle out of that but nothing too impactful,” said meteorologist Cameron Miller. “As far as temperatures are concerned it’s actually going to be quite cool.”

After a warm weekend, Tuesday’s high will be in the mid-60s as an upper-level low-pressure system lingers over the area. Wednesday, the first day of autumn, and Thursday will also stay in the 60s with cloud cover over most of the area. Friday and bring a chance for showers with highs in the mid-60s to low 70s. Sunday is expected to be sunny with a high near 70.

Miller said severe weather isn’t expected.

“Nothing out of the ordinary,” he said. “We’re a little bit below average on temperatures, but at this time of year when we’re going into fall that’s typically when we get these pushes of warm air.”
