WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The next weather maker is expected to arrive Tuesday afternoon. Sunshine will give way to increasing clouds as a cold front shifts southeast across the region. This will bring showers and storms beginning in the Northwoods and moving southeast through the evening. There is a chance for a few thunderstorms to become strong at times. Strong storms would allow for gusty winds, hail up to 1″, and some downpours to be produced. Highs in the mid 70s.

Warmer highs for Wednesday and Thursday in the low 80s. Mostly sunny skies on Wednesday with a chance for a brief rain shower during the evening in the northwoods. Most areas in North-Central Wisconsin will be at risk for showers and storms during the second half of Thursday as an additional cold front moves in. Some storms Thursday late day into the evening could be strong to severe. We are monitoring this to see if a First Alert Weather Day could be needed. Highs on both days are in the low to mid 80s.
