Scattered thunderstorms. Warm but not hot.

I’m going to have to mow the lawn again, aren’t I? Here in the Fox Valley we had a loud 30-minute thunderstorm to wake up to, with lots of lightning and strong winds turning the rain horizontal. While it seems to have passed now, there is a chance we may see more isolated thunderstorms developing this afternoon, as a small area of low pressure currently centered over Milwaukee’s Miller Park moves off to the east. Temperatures should be a little cooler today and this weekend compared to what they were yesterday, with highs near 80 expected both today and tomorrow, and just a few degrees warmer on Sunday.
