Morning sunshine, then scattered storms. Warm again today, cooler tomorrow.
A small disturbance in the atmosphere is working its way across Wisconsin this morning. While it shouldn’t be significant enough to cause severe weather in the area, it may be annoying enough where a few scattered showers and storms develop this afternoon and evening because of it. Behind this disturbance and its mini-cold front, cooler air arrives tomorrow and Wednesday before heating up again this weekend.

Weather Map of the Day
This 9-panel temperature map shows cooler air coming in tomorrow and Wednesday, with much warmer temperatures possible this weekend, presuming there’s enough breaks in the rain to allow the surface to absorb all this energy.
