Storms on Wednesday but Sunshine Returns Thursday

Another chance for some strong storms returns to the Badger State, Wednesday.


What You Need To Know

  • Strong storms possible in southeast Wisconsin
  • Main threats are strong gusts and downpours
  • Quiet weather settles in over next few days
  • Hot and humid by the weekend

It is now southeastern Wisconsin’s turn to see some strong storms Wednesday afternoon into evening. Although the threat primarily stays south of Wisconsin, there could be a few strong storms that appear.

The Storm Prediction Center has southeastern Wisconsin under a “marginal” risk for severe weather (1 out of 5 on our scale). So, although the severe threat is overall low, the possibility still remains for a strong and severe storm to pop up.

The main threats with these storms will be isolated strong gusts and downpours. Some areas in southeastern Wisconsin could see over an inch of rainfall from these storms.

As we head into Thursday, an area of high pressure will take over, bringing in quiet weather through the end of the workweek.

Expect a good amount of sunshine Thursday & Friday. In other words, make your outdoor plans for these two days.

By the weekend, things are going to get very hot & humid.

On Saturday, although temperatures will already be very warm in the upper 80s and low 90s, heat indices will reach into the triple digits for many locations.

Dew points will be in the low to mid 70s making that humidity very present to start your weekend.

We’re also tracking a system that’ll bring storms to Wisconsin Saturday and Sunday.

As we know, heat & humidity are the perfect ingredients to fuel stronger storms. We’ll be keeping a close eye on weekend storm activity over the next few days.
