A few storms are possible later today, otherwise the weekend is looking pretty good. Enjoy the seasonal Summer weather for the next couple of days because it will turn very warm and muggy next week.
Skies will start out mostly sunny for today, then become partly cloudy during the afternoon. The air will also be “dry” this morning before the humidity increase this afternoon. With increasing moisture and a weak cold front drifting in from the north, there could be a couple of strong thunderstorms developing. If the storms do develop, they will be in the Northwoods during the early afternoon before drifting down into central Wisconsin by late afternoon. Any storms that do form, will have the capability of producing high wind or possibly an isolated tornado. High temps will reach the 80 to 85 range with winds out of the southwest at 10-20 mph during the afternoon.
The weather will then quiet down tonight and remain that way for most of the weekend. There is a slight chance of rain in the far south on Saturday (well south of Stevens Point) and another chance of thunderstorms late Sunday night in the Northwoods. Otherwise, we should have a fair amount of sun with highs in the low 80s on Saturday and in the low to mid 80s on Sunday.
Next week will be much warmer. It looks like it could be the warmest and most humid week of the year. High temps will range from 85 to 90 on most days. There will be a couple of weak disturbances moving through the Midwest that could spark a few storms. There is at least a small chance of storms each day next week but the highest odds of wet weather as of now looks to be Monday evening through Tuesday.
Have a super Friday! Meteorologist Justin Loew, 4:30 a.m. 12-July-2019
