An extended period of warm, humid, and stormy weather is on the way for the rest of the week and right through the weekend.
Clouds increase tonight with lows only getting down into the mid-60s. Storms will move in late and last into the morning commute. It could be a slow commute with heavy rain possible with some of those storms. More thunderstorms are likely in the afternoon and even possibly the early evening hours. Some of these storms could be strong and produce some very heavy rain. The timing of the storms could impact the start of the high school football season. In between storms there will be some sunshine and temperatures will climb into the low to mid 80s. Upper 80s to near 90 degrees are possible down in the Coulee Region. You'll also notice a big increase in humidity making it feel downright tropical.
Thunderstorms will come to an end tomorrow evening. The rest of the night will be mild and humid. Friday is looking dry for the area. There's only a slim shot at a thunderstorm to pop-up. Otherwise, it will be warm and humid under partly cloudy skies. You'll definitely want to stay well hydrated with heat index values in the 90s! It's going to be a steamy night for Friday Night Football.
Not as humid but still pretty muggy for this weekend. Saturday looks like the drier of the two days right now. Some storms will be possible late on Saturday, but a better shot at rain on Sunday. Before the storms Sunday it looks to heat up quite a bit again. Some spots could get into the 90s. Next week remains active with a much slower cool-down for our area.
