Summer Arrives...Humidity & Storms
It has been a cool and dreary spring, but astronomical summer arrives at 12:16pm today and with it a warm front is bringing summer weather with 80s and high humidity and afternoon and evening T’storms. Areas along the lake will be cooler with patchy fog, but inland areas will be toasty and could hit the mid 80s.
SE Wisconsin is under a slight risk for severe storms this afternoon and evening, including large hail, damaging winds and downpours. With a warm front in the area, we have to be concerned about tornadoes as well…they love to form along warm fronts. The threat of storms will diminish after 10pm and then it will be foggy, warm and humid with lows in the mid 60s.
There is a chance for a few rumbles of thunder Wednesday morning, otherwise the slow moving low pressure system keeps Milwaukee cloudy and damp with scattered rain showers throughout the day and highs in the lower 70s. Fog is expected Wednesday night with lows near 60 and a few showers and the clouds and showers linger on Thursday with highs in the 60s.
Friday will be in the mid 60s with clouds early and hopefully the sun will make an appearance by afternoon as the storm leaves the Midwest. High pressure moves in for the weekend which means sunshine, a light breeze and highs in the 70s both days.
