Clouds breaking for some sunshine Sunday and dry with highs in the mid 70s. Monday will start off with a fair amount of sun but a warm front will be lifting north as the day goes along, sparking scattered showers or storms for the afternoon into the evening. Once again, these storms are not expected to be severe in nature, but stronger storms could produce downpours, gusty winds, or small hail. In the wake of this warm front, a hot and humid day is on tap Tuesday. More sun than clouds on Tuesday with afternoon readings soaring into the upper 80s to low 90s. Heat index values on Tuesday during the afternoon will be in the low to mid 90s, just below our criteria where a First Alert Weather Day would be needed due to extreme heat. No less, the a/c will be your friend in the first half of the week ahead.

Highs on Tuesday could rise to around 90 degrees.

A cold front is forecast to track across the Badger State on Wednesday. The timing is still to be determined, but there is the possibility of showers and storms with that front passage. There is a chance that storms could be strong to severe if the front moves across during the afternoon or early evening hours Wednesday. We are going to be watching the future model data to see how this could play out and if any First Alert Day would be needed due to intense storms. Highs Wednesday are in the low to mid 80s.

After the cold front exits the region, less humid but still warm on Thursday with highs in the low 80s. A mix of sun and clouds next Friday, June 17th with highs in the low to mid 80s.
