Scattered showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday. Slight risk of severe today and tomorrow.
A warm front is stretching across northern Wisconsin this morning, placing us under the “umbrella of warmth” ahead of a trailing cold front in the eastern Dakotas. Temperatures may reach the 80-degree mark today, but the brief sunshine will be smothered by clouds and scattered storms, which are expected to develop this afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has us under the “slight risk” category for severe weather both today and tomorrow so be on the lookout for threatening weather.
