Summery Summerfest & Weekend Storms

***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog.  If you missed yesterday’s entry, it is a must see.  The blog included pictures and video from the Muskego tornado, check it out right after this entry.

The pressure is now really on for great weather since Summerfest is underway, and Greek Fest begins this weekend.  Let’s not leave out the Brewers, they are still in town.  Another day of perfect weather for Friday with sunny to partly cloudy skies and temps in the 80s.

Below is a temperature forecast for 1 p.m. on Friday.  Notice upper 70s to low 80s across southeast Wisconsin.  A few more hours of heating and everyone will see highs in the 80s.  Lakeshore areas should see a warm day too, as winds will turn to the south-southwest.

After Friday the focus shifts to the next chance of showers and t-storms.  Yep, just in time for the weekend.  The short break of sun and dry weather will end on Saturday.  Low pressure and a couple of fronts will near Wisconsin boosting our rain chances.  Saturday WILL NOT be an all day washout, but there could be some storms around.  Right now, it looks like a possible morning, and late day chance.  And both rounds could produce some strong to severe thunderstorms.

Below is the forecast surface map for Saturday morning at 7 a.m.

By Sunday, a cold front will swing through Wisconsin.  The timing of the front will go a long way in determining our t-storm chances to close the weekend.  So make sure to check back for an all new blog later Friday, and watch WISN 12 News for the updates!

Have a great weekend and enjoy Summerfest!
