It was a hot and humid Saturday across the region. Highs today reached the low to mid 90s, but with high humidity, it actually felt like we were in the low 100s.
We did see a cluster of storms move through parts of Jackson, Eau Claire and Clark counties earlier today, but now we are watching a cold front approach from the west. Right now, storms are having a tough time forming due to too much warm air aloft... but it's still an area we will be keeping an eye on for storm development. The storms that do form will move east late this evening and overnight. There is still the chance that a few storms could be strong to severe. The main threats will be damaging winds and heavy rain, the secondary threats will be large hail and isolated tornadoes.
There will be a small chance that a few storms may linger into the early morning hours of Sunday. Then clouds will decrease, and it will still be warm. However, a secondary cold front will move through later in the day. Behind that front temperatures will cool and the humidity will be lower. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 80s.
Looking Ahead... The cooler and drier air will really start to settle in starting Monday. We'll see sunshine and high temperatures will be in the upper 70s. These same conditions will hang around for Tuesday and Wednesday, as well.
Temperatures will climb a few degrees, back to near normal, by the end of the week and the upcoming holiday weekend. Highs will be in the low 80s. We'll also see a chance of storms each day, but the chance looks small at this point.
Have a great night and stay tuned for updates! -Michelle Poedel
