Hot and Humid Sunday!

Forecast Updated at 10:45 P.M. Saturday

Calm overnight winds and lots of low level moisture could give us some patchy fog into Sunday morning. By mid-morning that will have burnt off. Sunday looks to be one of the warmest days of the year with highs climbing into the low to mid 80s under mostly sunny skies! Just how warm we get depends on whether or not we see a lot of haze from Canadian wildfires. Dominant southernly flow should keep up toasty, humid and blow that smoke north of the state. If we don't the get the hazy sunshine, we'll warm up fast! Lows in the mid 60s for Sunday night. An area of low pressure and a cold front behind it, make their way through North Central Wisconsin for Monday, bringing some storms. We could see some showers and thunderstorms return for Monday bringing a chance for severe weather. Highs topping of in the mid 70s Monday. We have some cooler air and high pressure bringing sunny skies for Tuesday!

Stay cool and hydrated!

Matt Benz
Chief Meteorologist

Matt joined WJFW back in February of 2008 as the Weekend Meteorologist. He was promoted to Morning Meteorologist in May of 2008 and has been Chief Meteorologist since September of 2010.

Matt graduated in May of 2007 from the University of North Dakota with B.S. degrees in Atmospheric Sciences and Environmental Geography. During his years in North Dakota, Matt was involved with several campus weather and news shows, including Prairie Weather Update, River Watch, UND Weather Update and Studio One, in which he worked as a forecaster, producer, anchor and feature reporter.

Matt grew up in Eden Prairie, a suburb of the Twin Cities, but he's a cheesehead at heart and has the Packer jerseys to prove it! He's considered the Northwoods his second home since childhood; his familys roots are from all across the Northwoods and Central Wisconsin. In fact, his grandparents are Weather Watchers for the evening shows on Newswatch 12!

Believe it or not, Matt looks on his move to the Northwoods as if it were a move to the tropics, since the winters in North Dakota can be extremely cold and long, but they're always exciting!

While living in Grand Forks, Matt honed his forecasting skills by studying a wide range of weather conditions, including frequent blizzards, record-setting cold of -43F (-70 with the wind chill) and snirt (combination of snow & dirt)!

Matt enjoys fishing and hunting during the summer and fall and skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing when the snow rolls in. He looks forward to living in the Northwoods and exploring what Northern Wisconsin has to offer!

Matt Brooks
Morning Meteorologist/Reporter

Matt Brooks joined WJFW in January 2014 as the Weekend Meteorologist and couldn't be happier to start his career in the Northwoods.

Matt is no stranger to the snow, having been born and raised in Northern Lower Michigan in the city of Cheboygan. His interest in weather began by forecasting snowfall amounts as a 6th grader after several intense winter storms. Although winter weather piqued his interest, his growing fascination for all weather continued through his high school years

In 2009, Matt started studying Meteorology at Central Michigan University where he was a member of the Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society. During the summer of 2012, Matt completed an internship at WPBN TV 7&4 in Traverse City under the supervision of the morning meteorologist.

When Matt returned to Central Michigan University the following fall, he was selected to be a weather anchor on the community news program News Central 34, which aired live in three counties. In May of 2013, he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in meteorology and a minor in mathematics.

Matt enjoys watching films, reading, and spending time practicing guitar. If you happen to see Matt out and about, don't hesitate to say hello and ask about the weather!
