Don't tell the thousands of competitors in the Crossfit Games in Madison this week that the weather isn't always this nice.
Abundant sunshine and seasonal temperatures are expected to continue all week, perfect for outdoor activities or for just heading to the beach or pool.
Forecasters have no rain in sight until Monday, and that's a slim chance as well.
The National Weather Service is looking at a high of 74 on Tuesday, the coolest it should be this week, with highs gradually warming through the 70s and into the low 80s by the weekend.
27 Storm Track meteorologist John Zeigler is also on track with sunshine and highs reaching 77 on Wednesday, 80 on Thursday and 83 on Friday.
The Weather Service is forecasting highs of 82 on Saturday and 83 on Sunday, under mostly sunny skies both days.
There's a 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms on Monday, but skies should be mostly sunny for the most part, with a high of 83.
