FORECAST UPDATED 7:15 AM THURSDAY
An area of low pressure will move northeast towards Wisconsin today which will bring a chance for showers and storms to the entire area. A warm front will separate temperatures in the 60s across the north to 70s and 80s across central and southern Wisconsin. A cold front will approach late in the day and evening which could bring strong to severe storms to the region. Heavy rain, strong winds, and a tornado threat will be possible late today. Winds will be out of the east at 5-15 mph.
Rain will still be possible at times tonight under mostly cloudy skies. Winds will become breezy out of the southwest at 10-20 mph with higher gusts and lows in the 50s.
Mostly cloudy skies and spotty rain showers will continue through much of Friday. Some clearing of the clouds is possible by the evening. It will be breezy and cool with highs likely staying in the 50s.
The upcoming weekend looks better with a little more sunshine and highs near average in the lower 60s.
We'll start the next work week dry on Monday before more rain chances return Tuesday and Wednesday.
Have a good day,
