Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog. The rain is done…for now…and mild weather has taken hold. More rain chances are in the forecast. In this blog we’ll look at when the next chance of showers and storms arrives, and what areas could potentially see severe weather.
Overall Friday looks dry across the area, and again temperatures away from the lake should make a run at 70 or better. Enjoy Friday and the first part of Saturday, because a chance of showers and t-storms creeps back into the forecast this weekend.
Saturday should start dry, but a chance of showers and t-storms will move in by Saturday afternoon/evening. Saturday will not be a washout, but have a plan ‘B’ ready if you have outdoor plans late Saturday.
Below is the NAM forecast model for later Saturday. The green represents rain. At least it won’t be a really cold rain like last weekend.
We’ll have to watch the storms closely this weekend for the potential to become severe. The threat for severe storms looks to be very low on Saturday. The Storm Prediction Center keeps the severe threat out of our area on Saturday, but still very close.
Below is the day 3 severe outlook.
The best chance of severe weather this weekend will occur on Sunday here in southeast Wisconsin. This is still over 48 hours away, so check back to the blog and our newscasts for updates from now through the weekend.
Finally, Tuesday evening I had a chance to talk to a group of Boy Scouts at the Elm Grove Lutheran School. Here is a picture of some of the kids! Thank you for inviting me to your school!
And if you are looking for a great cause to support this weekend, come out to the Healing Center’s 5K run/walk this Saturday morning at South Shore Park in Bay View. I will be kicking off the run/walk, which starts around 9am, with registration beforehand. If you are there, say hi and we’ll grab a picture together to post here in the blog!
Also on Saturday, the Bradford Beach Jam gets underway at 10am. Lots to do this weekend, and at least it will be a little warmer!
