Wind gusts in the 40 to 50 mph range are possible this afternoon and evening out ahead of the next weather maker coming our way. Be extra careful with any open flame due to the high fire danger currently in place. Highs today will range from the upper 60s to the upper 70s today inland, with near 60° temperatures near Lake Michigan. We should enjoy a mix of sun and clouds for the rest of the day.

Strong storms are going to blossom to our west later today and this evening. They SHOULD weaken as they approach our area during the overnight hours. We’ll keep on babysitting radar all night just to make sure. Lows tonight will be in the 50s to lower 60s. Gusty winds during the evening will slowly taper during the overnight hours.

Humidity will be much more noticeable on Tuesday. Dewpoints in the 60s to lower 70s are going to allow for a better chance of showers and storms here in northeast Wisconsin, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with hail, gusty winds, and heavy rainfall. Highs will be 60s and 70s once again... pushing the upper 70s from Green Bay to the southwest.

Even WARMER air is slated to build in later in the work week, but the tradeoff will be a continuing chance of showers and storms.
