Weather conditions look perfect for Thursday with nearly 100% sunshine, lower humidity, and slightly cooler temperatures. It certainly is hard to beat a late July day in Wisconsin with highs in the upper 70s!
The visible satellite below from around 8 a.m. Thursday shows the clear skies in southeast Wisconsin, but clouds gathering over the Dakotas. The clouds to our west will begin streaming into our area on Friday. So enjoy the sunshine for today!
Question marks begin to enter the forecast on Friday. With a warm front pushing into the Midwest, a chance of showers and thunderstorms will increase over Minnesota and Iowa. A few of those showers and t-storms may move east. The question is whether they reach southeast Wisconsin. Right now it looks like any rain will hold off until late Friday. Rain chances will be around 30%. Don’t cancel any outdoor plans, but just be aware that a shower can’t be ruled out.
Again on Saturday a chance of showers and thunderstorms will be possible, but not likely! Saturday’s rain chance looks like it will be mainly in the afternoon. The good news both days is that no widespread heavy rain is anticipated.
Below is a rainfall forecast through Saturday from the RPM computer model. Notice that not all locations see rain in the next 2 days. Just use the image below as guidance, because with summertime rain and storms pinpointing the exact location is very difficult.
If you are heading to the African World Festival on the Summerfest grounds, or attending the Racine County Fair, much of this weekend looks dry!
