Temperatures weren't as warm Friday under the cloud cover, but it is continuing to get more humid. We were still below 60 on our dew points with an exception or two Friday, but dew points will continue to climb this weekend.
Saturday will be flirting with that humid 60 degree dew point mark and we're expecting low to mid 60s Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will feel like summer, too, with highs near 80 starting Sunday.
With this warmer and humid air, there will be several rounds of scattered showers and thunderstorms moving through.
While there will be plenty of dry time for outdoor activities, just remember that lightning can strike over 10 miles away from the storm, so if you can see lightning but can't count to 30 before hearing thunder, you're too close to the storm.
Especially if you're out on the lake this weekend, realize that it will take time to safely return to inside a building where you're safe from lightning.
Fishing is number one on the list of what people were doing when they were struck and killed by lightning, and many other Memorial Day weekend activities like camping and boating are also on that list.
Our free New 18 Stormtracker Weather App will alert you when lightning is in your vicinity, but if you're out on the water that may be too late. Check the app's radar and lightning layers often this weekend so you know when you have to get indoors.
Be prepared as thunderstorms are possible at some point each day. The first cluster of storms after early morning scattered showers Saturday will come in the afternoon, but latest analysis shows the widespread activity staying south of us, keeping the biggest threat for marginally severe weather there. Still, a few thunderstorms are possible locally.
Another round arrives Sunday midday and could bring some gusty winds and possibly hail to Western Wisconsin, then more chances continue on Memorial Day Monday.
Rain totals may not be impressive widespread, but locally heavy rain remains possible.
Temperatures will stay warm through next week and expect some summer-like humidity, too.
