It was a very nice start to Friday. Temperatures were in the 50s, the sky was clear, and it was not humid. The afternoon will feel different with some heat and humidity. Rain is also possible.
Temperatures will climb into the 80s this afternoon, even though cloud cover will increase in the late morning and afternoon. The clouds will be caused by slow-approaching cold front. Near noon, scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop over the northern half of Wisconsin. Most of the activity will impact the north central and northeast portions of Wisconsin, but some rain cannot be ruled out in west central Wisconsin between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Clouds will decrease on Friday night, and it will be less humid with lows in the 60s.
This weekend will be fairly quiet and warm. Saturday will be mostly sunny, though showers and isolated thunderstorms could affect locations south of US highway 10 in the early morning. Highs will be in the middle 80s, and it won’t be humid. Sunday will be more humid with highs near 90 degrees. Much of the day will be mostly sunny, then isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop in the late afternoon and evening.
Monday holds a better chance for showers and thunderstorms, though the activity will likely be scattered in the region. Otherwise, it will be very warm and humid with highs in the lower 90s. Tuesday through Thursday of next week will be warm and humid with highs between 85 and 90 degrees. Lows will be in the 60s. Friday and the following weekend have the potential to be hot – potentially, highs in the middle to upper 90s with humidity. The pattern could shift between now and then, but it is worth watching in our upcoming forecasts.
