Warm afternoon air could give way to developing thunderstorms.  We’ll have the ingredients around for showers and a few storms as the day wears on, focusing that chance along a cold front that will be diving into northeast Wisconsin.

  • STRONG STORM TIMING:  4pm to 10pm – Starts in the northwoods early on, then moves into the Fox Cities and southern communities later this evening and tonight.
  • THREAT:  Watching for the chance of DAMAGING WIND GUSTS and LARGE HAIL with a few of the storms.  As always, thunderstorms can produce heavy downpours.

Here is the latest run of our high resolution forecast model showing how this day might play out:

The big IF:  We have a lack of moisture in the air, meaning the dew points are low.  That may hinder thunderstorm development for today even though the cold front will be around.  None-the-less, you need to be prepared for what COULD happen.
