STRONG THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE THIS EVENING
Your First Alert Weather Forecast:
Thunderstorms this morning NORTHWEST of the Fox Valley have created a canopy of cloud cover across the area. This is delaying the arrival of storms for folks in eastern Wisconsin until tonight. We should still see inland high temperatures at, or above 80° again this afternoon. Not only is it going to be another warm day, but due to a breezy south wind, it’s turning rather humid too.
Look for a second round of stronger thunderstorms into this evening. Storms later today may become severe with high winds, hail, heavy rainfall and possibly isolated tornadoes. The highest risk of severe weather would be over portions of central Wisconsin. It is now a First Alert Weather Day, with our severe weather outlook in the MODERATE category. As thunderstorms push into eastern Wisconsin tonight, heavy rainfall is possible. Some of the heavier storms could bring 1-3″ of quick rainfall, leading to some flash flooding.
Otherwise, the heat is expected to build late in the week. By Saturday, inland high temperatures will probably be near 90 degrees, with plenty of muggy air. More thunderstorms will be possible this weekend. Early indications suggest that some of the weekend storms may also be strong, so stay tuned...
