First Alert Weather: Turning warmer & more humid this weekend
More sunshine than clouds tomorrow, while temps rise well into the 80s to near 90 this weekend.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Clouds have been sticking around North Central Wisconsin much of the morning into the early afternoon hours. There is promise for at least some intervals of sun later this afternoon. No less, cooler than average this time of the year due to the limited sunshine as readings top out in the low to mid 70s. Partly cloudy to clear tonight with lows in the mid 50s to around 60.
Warmer and a bit more humid on Friday with a fair amount of sunshine. Highs rebound into the low to mid 80s. The heat and humidity will be back in full force this weekend. Partly sunny on Saturday with afternoon temps rising into the mid 80s to around 90. Heat index values in the low to mid 90s. Sunday is a bit more of a wild card for how hot it may get, as there is a risk of scattered showers and storms. No less, still muggy and warm with highs in the mid 80s.
Along with the warmer and steamy conditions, a cold front will be inching toward the Wisconsin River Valley late Saturday night and on Sunday. Ahead of the front, there is the possibility of showers and storms. Storms may be on the strong side well after midnight Saturday night into early Sunday, and then again later in the day Sunday into Sunday night. At this time, a First Alert Weather Day is possible for both days of the weekend, with Saturday being for the hot conditions, while Sunday could be for the risk of storms. Be sure to check back for updates in the next day or so for additional details on what to expect.
Once that cold front clears the area later Sunday night, warm and less humid weather is on the way for the start of the new work week. Highs Monday and Tuesday in the low 80s. The next chance of showers or a storm could be on Wednesday with afternoon readings peaking in the upper 70s.
