The month of May wraps up on Tuesday with increasing clouds and a risk of showers and storms during the afternoon into the evening with a cold front. The potential exists that storms could be strong to severe with damaging winds, large hail, heavy rainfall, and frequent lightning. We are monitoring Tuesday afternoon and evening for a First Alert Weather Day. In addition, Tuesday evening is the home opener for the Wausau Woodchucks. Right now, the weather isn’t looking great but we will continue to update the timing of this round of storms as the day gets closer.

In the wake of this cold front, cooler and less humid Wednesday to start off the month of June. Highs in the low 70s. Pleasant on Thursday with highs in the low 70s. Next Friday, June 3rd features a fair amount of sun with highs again around 70.
