Let’s start today’s blog with the thunderstorms from this morning. The storms were severe when they rolled through Madison with hail larger than golf balls. Many cars were damaged in Shorewood Hills. Those storms weakened as they moved into SE Wisconsin, but many of you probably woke up with the thunder this morning. Even when a storm is not severe it can still be damaging. Check out the story on the house hit by lightning in Brookfield. It appears that the chimney took a direct lightning strike and the lightning traveled into the house creating a fire in the attic. Here is the link to the story on WISN 12 this morning.
A few more showers are possible this evening in our southern counties, but most of the night and Sunday should be dry.
The above image is the RPM model for early this evening. Drier air is working in from the north and that should push most of the rain out of the area as the night goes on. It will be cool tonight with lows in the 40s. Sunday will still have a fair amount of clouds, but should remain dry.
The warm air begins to return on Monday and 80s are back for Tuesday. Check out the temperatures on the RPM computer model for 1pm on Tuesday.
The warm temperatures will come with a cost. A cold front will be arriving late in the day bringing thunderstorms. Some of those storms may be strong to severe. Stay with weather watch 12 for the latest.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
