A low pressure and cool front are slowly dropping across the region this evening. This has resulted in an area of showers and t-storms developing across northern Wisconsin back into southeastern Minnesota. This whole complex will slide southeast tonight. Showers and t-storms to our north and west will slowly overspread the area as we head through the evening. There is just enough instability for strong to isolated storms to briefly form early this evening. That threat will lessen after sunset. In addition, these storms will be proficient rain producers. Look for lows tonight in the 60s.
The chance of showers and t-storms will continue into Thursday, especially through about midday, as the front sinks to our south. Otherwise expect a mostly to partly cloudy day with cooler highs in the upper 70s.
Looking Ahead... Friday is still looking like a great day with mostly sunny skies, highs in the low 80s and comfortable humidity levels.
I've reduced the rain chances just a bit for the weekend, but still can't fully rule out the chance for some isolated storms both days. However... despite the rain chances, we should see plenty of sun and pleasant temperatures. Look for highs in the low-mid 80s.
August looks to start on a toasty note with highs Monday in the mid to upper 80s. It then gets hot and humid Tuesday through Thursday with highs in the upper 80s to near 90°. With the heat and humidity, there could be a few hit/miss t-storms... especially during the overnight and early morning hours.
Have a great night! -Cory Malles
