This evening’s rain is gone, but flooding problems... including washed out roads will persist. The heaviest rain fell across southern parts of Oconto and Marinette Counties with widespread 2-4″ totals and isolated spots with 5″+. We’ll be dry overnight with mainly clear to partly cloudy skies. Because of the high humidity today, lows for most will stay in the 60s.

We have another First Alert Weather Day on Friday. It will be unseasonably warm and humid once again with highs into the upper 80s. A round of strong-to-severe thunderstorms is expected to develop by the mid/late afternoon. The threat for stronger storms appears highest to the west of the Fox Valley. The main severe threat will be posed by quarter-size or slightly larger hail and damaging wind gusts upwards of 60 mph. A cold front will be responsible for triggering those storms, and after it passes, our pattern begins to change.

Isolated storms are still possible on Saturday... which will be our “transition day.” Highs should still be above average, but closer to 80° as opposed to 90s. It may also feel slightly humid. By Sunday, we’re in the lower 70s for highs with 60s expected next week. With the loss of summer-like heat and humidity, our rain and storm chances will drop off next week as well.
