Our FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY continues this evening. A round of rain showers has formed ahead of a warm front, and it will bring wet conditions for the evening commute. At the same time, severe storms will develop across parts of Minnesota, Iowa, and western Wisconsin. Later this evening they’ll start heading in our direction. Some storms could maintain their intensity bringing large hail, damaging winds, and locally heavy rainfall.

Additional showers and storms are likely tomorrow morning through the mid-afternoon as a cold front pushes across the state. Our weather will dry out with clearing skies late Friday. Temperatures tonight will stay in the mid 50s to lower 60s with highs Friday in the upper 60s and lower 70s. It may feel slightly humid for a time, but the air will dry out quickly this weekend.

Despite the lower humidity, our weekend forecast is not necessarily a quiet one. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers possible into the afternoon... especially from the Fox Valley southward. It will be noticeably cooler than Thursday with highs staying closer to 60° both days this weekend. A stray shower is still possible on Sunday, but most areas will stay dry. Temperatures should get back into the 70s for highs by the latter half of next week.
