With the remnants of Isaac still in the Ohio River Valley, the forecast for southeast Wisconsin calls for warmer temperatures and increased humidity on this Labor Day. Highs will be cooler along Lake Michigan thanks to an ESE wind at 5-10 mph, but everyone will still see low to mid-80s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. There is a chance for a few afternoon showers and even thunderstorms to develop mainly in the west and in the north but that chance becomes greater tonight. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s with mostly cloudy skies and scattered chances for rain and storms.
Tuesday will be almost a repeat day with unseasonably warm temperatures, muggy conditions and mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. There will be another chance for a few isolated showers and storms to develop but the best chance for rain comes late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning as a cold front moves on through. Some of those storms could be on the stronger side and bring a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain.
Behind the front, temperatures will drop back to near average, into the mid-70s, with mostly sunny skies on Thursday. A few spotty showers are possible on Friday but cooler temperatures will be the main story going into the weekend.
