First Alert Weather: Summer heat & more humid with risks of showers/storms
A hot and breezy Memorial Day with highs climbing close to 90°. Ch. strong storms on Tuesday.
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Summer temperatures, more humid, and some storms are back in the forecast at the end of the holiday weekend and the end of May. Mostly cloudy, warm, breezy, and muggy tonight with lows in the low to mid 60s. There is a slight chance of morning showers or storms on Monday in the western parts of the area. Otherwise expect a breezy, hot & humid Memorial Day with a fair amount of sun. with highs in the mid 80s to near 90.
A chance of showers or storms Monday night into early Tuesday morning, which will be well in advance of a cold front that will arrive during the day on Tuesday.
Tuesday features more clouds than sun with a risk of showers and storms from midday into the afternoon. Depending when the cold front moves across the region on Tuesday will make a difference on whether we experience run-of-the-mill storms (with a frontal passage during the late morning or midday), or strong/severe storms (with the front moving through in the afternoon). The peak of daytime heating in the afternoon is the more likely timeframe for the storms to be stronger. The potential exists for strong/severe storms to produce damaging winds, hail, and heavy rainfall. We are monitoring Tuesday to see if a First Alert Weather Day will be necessary.
In the wake of the cold front, less humid and a bit cooler on Wednesday with a fair amount of sunshine. Highs in the low 70s. A mix of sun and clouds Thursday with a chance of showers. Highs close to 70. Partly sunny Friday with a high in the low to mid 70s. Scattered showers or storms are possible on Saturday with highs in the low 70s. Next Sunday, June 5th has a chance for showers or storms. Highs near 70.
