The second half of the week features daily opportunities for showers and storms in the region. Sunshine will be limited by clouds but it will remain warmer than average for this time of the year. Highs from Wednesday to next Saturday will be in the low to mid 70s. Storms are expected to be below severe limits for the last half of the week, but stronger storms will produce gusty winds, hail, and downpours. Time will also tell on how much rainfall we are going to pick up locally, but ideally receiving a half-inch to an inch of rain would be helpful to alleviate the fire danger in North Central Wisconsin.
