High pressure aloft in our atmosphere is allowing for plenty of sunshine across northeast Wisconsin. It’s another warm one, as high temperatures rise into the upper 70s near the lakeshore, with low to mid 80s inland. A south wind will cause the dew point to rise through the afternoon. You’ll probably notice the humidity by this evening.

Like it or not, the weekend is going to be mega-muggy, especially on Sunday where it’s going to feel a bit tropical. By then, the heat index is expected to rise into the 90s.

The increased humidity will also aid in fueling clusters of showers and thunderstorms. Look for a round of rain and thunder late tonight and through Saturday morning. Then, after a break, we’ll see a second wave of thunderstorms Sunday night and into early Monday. So if you have outdoor plans, it looks like Sunday will be the drier of the two weekend days (but it will be hot and muggy). While there will be some dry weather in between these rain chances, some of the thunderstorms Sunday night may have locally heavy rain and perhaps some gusty winds... Keep informed with your weekend weather!
