WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Showers and storms will push through central Wisconsin Saturday morning, with gusty winds, as well as brief downpours and scattered lightning as the main threats. While severe weather is not likely, stronger storms will be able to pack a punch, with wind gusts up to and over 45 mph possible, as well as hail up to 1″ in diameter.

A tad warmer to end the weekend. The next best chance for a weather maker to occur in the area will be Sunday afternoon or evening as a frontal system moves in. Though, wet weather may arrive earlier depending if the front decides to pick up speed. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely at some point Sunday, and may continue into Monday.
