Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Let’s all please remember what Memorial Day is about and honor the sacrifices that have been made so we can live in the greatest country in the world.
We had our first 90 degree temperature of the year on Sunday. We average ten 90 degree + days per year and we are off to an early start. We just missed the record high of 91 set back in 1994.
Memorial Day will be much different from Sunday. A cold front is about to bring a change. For those of you who did not like the hot weather, you will like Monday a lot more than Sunday.
The cold front will push into SE Wisconsin late tonight and bring a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Severe weather is not expected and many areas will remain dry.
The image above is from our RPM model depicting some scattered storms at 1AM especially in our southern counties. The southern counties will have the best chance of rain as the front moves through.
By 8AM, most of the rain is moving to our east, although, some showers may hang on into Kenosha, Racine and Walworth until midday. I think the majority of the area will be dry by 9AM.
The amount of rain looks to be pretty small with most areas getting under a .25″ unless you end up under one of the thunderstorms and you could get as much as .50″ of rain. We have been dry for the last week, so some rain would be good. The northern part of Wisconsin really needs the rain. More on that tomorrow. Have a great holiday.
