Tracking the Potential for More Severe Weather

Local News

After a night of active thunderstorms on Monday, there’s more activity we are keeping an eye on for this afternoon & evening. 

The combination of a southward sagging cold front, an approaching weather disturbance, and daytime heating will likely be responsible for some additional strong thunderstorms within our viewing area over the next several hours.

The focus for strong or severe thunderstorms will likely be the further south you go from Green Bay where sunshine has been around for a longer period of time today helping to destabilize the atmosphere to a greater extent.

Where an overcast has assembled this morning for areas around and including Green Bay and northward, it will be tougher to get severe weather, though not impossible. 

The time table for strong or even severe thunderstorms will be between 3-7 PM.

The main threats today will again be strong winds and especially heavy rainfall. 

Additional scattered showers and thundershowers can persist thereafter into the late evening.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 12 AM for the majority of us with a Flash Flood Watch in effect until 7 AM tomorrow morning for our southernmost counties including Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, and Marquette.

Areas from Green Bay and southward can expect to pick up another 1-2, maybe 3″ of additional rainfall by tomorrow morning.

The higher totals are likely to be tallied in southern locations.

We turn much drier Wednesday and temperatures are to be much cooler in the upper 60’s for highs.

Humidity levels are to be considerably lower across all of Northeast Wisconsin.

We will keep you posted through the afternoon and evening on social media and on-air.

Keep it tuned to WFRV and Storm Team 5.
