An area of showers and thunderstorms is moving toward western Wisconsin and will affect us late Saturday into Sunday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the areas shaded in green under a marginal risk for severe weather tonight. This is the lowest out of the five levels of severe threats, but strong to severe storms are still possible overnight.
The severe threat with these storms is generally low but cannot be ruled out. Strong winds will be the biggest threat with tonight’s storms although we cannot rule out the possibility of hail or a brief tornado.
We will stay dry through Saturday evening, but cloud cover will begin to increase after sunset. Storms will likely approach western Wisconsin by two or three in the morning and move through during the predawn hours into the first few hours of Sunday morning.
There is the chance for some lingering showers through mid-morning on Sunday, but showers will move out by mid-day. Sunday starts mostly cloudy, but sunshine will increase as the day progresses. By afternoon we will be mostly sunny. Skies clear completely Sunday night and last through Monday.
Humidity isn’t bad for now, but will increase quite a bit tomorrow. There will be another humidity spike for Tuesday but mid-week will be comfortable. Most of the extended forecast will be sunny or mostly sunny. The next chance for showers and thunderstorms will be Tuesday.
