Still feeling like summer for the start of school

CREATED Sep 4, 2012

The back to work and school forecast for southeast Wisconsin continues to feel like summer with partly cloudy skies, highs in the mid-80s and slightly muggy conditions.  The majority of the day will be dry but there is a slight chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm to develop this afternoon.  The best chance for rain comes late tonight and into early Wednesday morning.  Overnight lows remain mild, just below 70 degrees.

Rain showers and thunderstorms are likely on Wednesday, especially late morning where some storms could be strong to even severe.  We could see up to a half an inch of rain from this passing cold front, though higher amounts are possible in thunderstorms.  Rain comes to an end late Wednesday evening and skies will start to clear overnight, allowing temperatures to drop into the low 60s.

Highs will be back to seasonable 70s for September by Thursday with sunny skies and a light NW wind.  There is a slight chance for a few spotty showers Friday night and into Saturday morning, allowing temperatures to drop into the low 70s for a cooler weekend.
