Strong or severe thunderstorms are possible today but the best chance will be this evening and into tonight. At 8 am most of the state is under a “slight” risk of severe weather with the main threats being large hail and damaging wind. The storms will diminish after midnight. Notice in the map below that parts of Iowa and Minnesota are under a “moderate” threat. Thunderstorms are expected to develop in this area this afternoon and move northeast this evening and tonight into our area.
Things will heat up today with temperatures pushing into the 70s…the first time since October 12th of last year. That’s more than six months!
Temperatures will continue above normal for the next few days and it is looking good for the weekend with mostly sunny skies on Saturday and a chance of showers in the afternoon on Mother’s Day Sunday.

Spring warmth (70s) may bring severe thunderstorms to parts of Wisconsin this week.
The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted Southwest Wisconsin for a risk for severe weather on Day 5, (D5 is the secret government code for Thursday). On Monday it will be D4, Tuesday D3……
While NE Wisconsin is not in the highlighted area, we could also have severe storms; at this point large hail will be the most likely threat.
What do you need to do now? Make sure you have a weather radio; it acts like a personal tornado siren for severe weather. Weather radios are an inexpensive way to save your life when damaging weather moves in; every family should have one. If you already have a weather radio, make sure it has new batteries inside.
Also, let your family know that storms Thursday could be severe. By planting that seed of information people will pay closer attention to the weather. At Fox 11 we don’t want anyone caught off guard by life threatening storms.
For the latest weather information tune into Good Day Wisconsin 5-9am and Fox 11 News @ 5pm and 9pm. And of course you can get weather information 24/7 here at Fox11online.com

Dry and sunny weather will make for a truly spring like weekend.
Snow piles will start to shrink as highs reach into the low 40s today.
South winds will push Sunday’s high into the low 50s. While 50s won’t be a record breaker (Sunday’s record is 73°) it will be above normal.
Monday will also be above normal with mid 50′s in the forecast. Temperatures the rest of next week end up below normal, so enjoy what warmth we have this weekend.

Another record to show just how cold it has been this winter may have fallen (it’ll be a record with an asterisk at this point). Last night (Wednesday) in Green Bay the temperature dropped to -11° shortly before midnight. Then at 3:30 am this morning the temperature plummeted to -15°. The official numbers aren’t in yet from the National Weather Service but that if it holds that would propel us into the number one spot for number of days below -10. Even if that isn’t the case, the record has at least been tied. The record for most days below zero keeps growing with another 2 days added because of the negative numbers reached yesterday and this morning. This may be the final hurrah as warmer weather moves in and sticks around for the next 7 days. So yes it has been cold and; most of us want it to end but at least we have the distinction of making it through one of the coldest winters on record! Feel proud!

Green Bay’s high temperature will be 20 degrees colder than Fairbanks Alaska today. This temperature flip is typical that when we see very cold weather in Wisconsin. Currently the jet stream is rising in Alaska (producing milder temperatures) and is dipping in the Great Lakes (giving us the never ending cold).
Green Bay Average high and low 32°/16°
Fairbanks average high and low 17°/-10°
