Keep the sunscreen handy this week because we’ll see a lot of sun with warming temperatures. After a high in the low 80s Sunday we’ll be about 8 to 10 degrees cooler to start the work week. An area of high pressure will push slowly to the east and bring in warmer air. Highs by Thursday will be near 90! The winds will be very manageable as well today and tomorrow with northeast winds 5-10 mph today turning to the south Tuesday.

We got some much-needed rain this morning from the first round of showers and thunderstorms that pushed through the area…now the heat is on! Expect a high of near 90° with partly sunny skies. The heat and high humidity (dew points in the upper 60s) will be in place as a cold front moves in resulting in round 2 of showers and thunderstorms. Right now it looks like the best chance of the storms are between 4 pm and midnight. Some of the storms may become severe with damaging wind and large hail as well as an isolated tornado. Check out interactive radar to track the storms. FOX 11′s meteorologists will be monitoring the storms so keep it tuned to your station for severe weather coverage.

While things are starting off nice and quiet today, we have a chance to see some showers and storms kick up this afternoon as temperatures rise into the upper 80s. The good news is, while there is a threat for severe weather, it is a very modest risk. A few storms here and there may contain severe hail and winds, but I’m expecting the number of those storms to be less than what I could count on one hand.
June 16th Weather Planner
The storms should fire up after Noon today, and last through the early-mid evening hours. We should then see a brief reprieve from the wet weather, before another risk for some passing showers or storms presents itself towards midnight. We then will gradually dry out into Sunday.
The active weather could return on Monday, and this threat for severe weather looks much more organized than today’s threat. We’ll keep a close eye on it as we get closer to the start of your work week.

Some relief from the dry weather is possible this afternoon. Thunderstorms with heavy rain have been hitting the Northwestern side of Wisconsin. The HRRR weather computer model is putting down rain and thunderstorms for the Northwoods between 4 and 5pm (see map at the bottom). These storms will run into drier air so I would not expect everyone to see rain; and the intensity of the showers will decrease the farther east they go. A stationary front to our west will keep the chance for rain in the forecast through the weekend. Forecasting when and where the rain will fall will be extremely hard so check Fox11 radar before you head outside. You can also get the radar to your smart phone, click here to download them.

After three days in the 90′s and upper 80′s we’ll see high temperatures in the low 70′s today. Clear skies and lighter winds tonight will bring temperatures into the upper 30′s in the far North Woods. A frost advisory is in effect tonight until 7am Wednesday morning for Langlade, Forest, Florence, and Northern Marinette Counties. Cover sensitive plants with a cloth or put them in the garage to keep them from getting frost bitten.

We could really use some rain in Wisconsin. In the past 10 days the National Weather Service Office in Green Bay has had a trace of rain. In the past 20 days only 0.53” has fallen.
A few showers or thunderstorms will develop this afternoon. A cold front is just entering into Wisconsin and humid weather has built across the state with dew points in the low 60s. An impulse in the jet stream will move overhead this afternoon combined with the front and higher humidity to produce scattered thundershowers. One or two of these storms could be strong with gusty winds and small hail.
The chance for rain ends late this afternoon and no new rain is forecast for the next 6 day.

A storm system in lower Michigan will drift west today. It will drive clouds and a few showers into NE Wisconsin. If you need sunshine it won’t be far away, Wausau will see partly sunny skies today. The same storm system will hang around Saturday giving us a chance for afternoon showers and a few thunderstorms. Sunday should be sunny, warm, and dry!

A very warm March and a warmer than normal April and May resulted in a record warm Spring in Green Bay…(meteorological Spring that is, which is March, April and May. ) The preliminary numbers that I pounded out this morning on my iphone calculator show we obliterated the old record by nearly 2 degrees! Madison and Milwaukee also set records for the warmest Spring.
