Due to the sporadic nature of thunderstorms, there will be a wide variety of rainfall amounts expected across central Wisconsin throughout early next week, with a general range from 0.75″- 1.50″ + within some of the heavier thunderstorms. Heat index values will jump from the 70s to the middle to upper 80s for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so please be prepared and drink plenty of fluids as the warm up continues.

While there will be several shower and thunderstorm chances for the next several days, at this time, there doesn’t look to be any one day that will end up as a complete washout. However, there will be showers and storms at times, that could produce some small hail, gusty winds, and brief downpours, especially Thursday throughout the weekend.
