South winds that became breezy at times Sunday brought warm and very humid conditions northward through Wisconsin. Highs ranged through the 80s, but the high humidity made it feel much warmer, with heat index values reaching the low 90s in through parts of central Wisconsin.
A wave of low pressure tracking through northwestern Wisconsin triggered showers and thunderstorms across northwestern and northern parts of the state during the late afternoon and evening, with some wind damage reported in Vilas County. A strong cold front moving southeastward into Wisconsin tonight may also trigger showers and thunderstorms in the area. Gusty winds, hail, heavy rainfall, and dangerous lightning will be possible through tonight.
Monday will be a bit cooler, with a chance of showers and storms continuing during the morning. As the cold front pushes into southern Wisconsin through the afternoon winds will turn to the northwest leading to lowering humidity levels.
Pleasant and dry summer weather is expected Tuesday and Wednesday. Slightly warmer and more humid conditions returning later in the week will likely lead to chances of showers and storms again at times.
Have a good night and a marvelous Monday! Meteorologist Mike Breunling 10:45 p.m. August 9, 2020
