A cold front is forecast to move into the Badger State on Wednesday, providing a risk of showers and storms. The timing of the front is still not clear, but if the front does push across our area during the afternoon or early evening on Wednesday, there is a chance some storms could be strong to severe. We are going to monitor this in the coming days to see if severe storms are a better risk or not and if we would need a First Alert Weather Day. Be sure to check back for updates. In the wake of this front, next Thursday, June 16th will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
