A break in the wet conditions on Sunday
WAUSAU, Wisconsin (WSAW) – We’re about a month away from the end of the summer season on the calendar, so it’s time to take advantage of the good weather in north-central Wisconsin. Fortunately, we have a gem of a day in the works for tomorrow. A moonlit sky and comfortably cool tonight. Morning lows in the upper 1940s in cooler areas in the north, to lower to mid 1950s over much of the rest of the region.
Usually sunny and pleasant on Sundays. Much less humid. Highs in the mid 1970s to near 80. A weak cold front will extend over the area early Monday morning which could trigger scattered showers and storms before and shortly after dawn. Severe thunderstorms are not expected, but showers and lightning may occur. The clouds will give way to the sun as the day progresses, however, it will be more humid. Peaks in the mid-1980s.
Tuesday presents the potential of two rounds of showers and thunderstorms. The first batch can slide again during the early hours of the morning. The second round is the one we are keeping an eye on and could be a possible first weather alert day. Patterns tend towards when this next band of storms arrives at the end of the day or Tuesday evening. With a fair amount of storm fuel coming from the wet conditions, these storms could be strong to severe. Destructive winds, hail and torrential rains are believed to be the main threats. Highs on Tuesdays in the mid-80s.
Rather hot and humid on Wednesday with a mix of sun and cloud. Peaks in the upper mid-80s. Partly sunny Thursday with a risk of showers or thunderstorms later in the day. High in the mid-1980s. Unstable conditions could be present for the end of the week with showers and thunderstorms next Friday and Saturday. It’s too early to tell if any of these storms will be strong to severe, but sometimes we could have decent precipitation. Highs next Friday and Saturday in the 70s above around 80.
