Rounds of rain and some thunderstorms will continue tonight across Western Wisconsin. The storms are putting down some heavy downpours, some lightning, and gusty winds. The rain will eventually lessen in intensity and begin to taper off by later tonight.
A few showers will linger into Saturday as we kick off the Labor Day Weekend. Expect a mix of clouds and sun with cooler temperatures in the 70's and less humid conditions. This weekend is known as the "unofficial end to summer" and we'll have some pretty typical summer weather on Sunday. Expect a good amount of sunshine with temperatures climbing back into the 80's. It will be quite humid once again, but there will be a nice breezy out of the south. A great day to hit the pool or the lake.
The next storm system will approach the area later on Sunday. Storms should hold off until after dark. However, there is the chance for severe weather for Sunday Night. A large swath of rain and storms will roll through Sunday night bringing some pretty impressive rainfall totals to the area. The storms will exit Monday morning. So if you have that Labor Day BBQ planned, we should have some nice and dry weather in the afternoon to enjoy the extra day off.
Tuesday looks quite heading back to work and school. A warm up will take hold into the middle of the week with the next chance at storms on Thursday.
Enjoy the holiday weekend and keep an eye on the forecast!
