Monday is a fantastic summer day with a good deal of sunshine and highs in the low to mid 70s.
The next weather maker to affect the Badger State will arrive Tuesday afternoon. Sunshine will give way to increasing clouds as a cold front shifts southeast across the region from the afternoon into Tuesday evening. There is a chance of strong storms from Highway 64 and to the south that could produce gusty winds, hail up to 1″, and downpours. Highs in the mid 70s.
Wednesday and Thursday are warmer with a fair amount of sunshine. There could be showers or a storm Wednesday night in the north, while most of the area will have a risk of showers and storms later Thursday afternoon into Thursday night with another cold front.
