NOW: Heat and humidity continue into Sunday, but storm chances return

Another hot and humid day is on tap for Sunday with highs in the low 90s. Factor in the oppressive humidity, and it’ll feel like it’s 95-100 degrees tomorrow afternoon.

Thankfully this sticky weather won’t be with us for long. Dew points will return to more comfortable levels to start next week after a slow moving cold front passes through early Monday morning. You'll notice the humidity drop throughout the day on Monday.

As that front draws closer to the area on Sunday, scattered rain and storms will become more numerous. Most of the area will likely be dry overnight tonight and tomorrow morning as the rain and storms stay in central Wisconsin, but we can’t rule out a stray shower in Fond du Lac or Sheboygan counties. 

Chances for rain and storms will start to increase around midday north of Milwaukee, with rain and storms becoming likely across all of southeast Wisconsin late afternoon into the evening.

Multiple waves of rain and storms will be possible along this front through the evening, but the threat for any isolated strong to severe storms will wind down after sunset.

A few showers may linger through early Monday morning, but once the front exits the area in the morning we'll dry out and see some more sun by afternoon.

Widespread severe weather isn't expected tomorrow afternoon, but a few isolated severe storms with damaging winds will be possible. The best chance for any strong storms will be northwest of the Milwaukee metro where there's a level 1, Marginal Risk, for severe storms.

The bigger threat with tomorrow's storms will be heavy rain. Any storms that develop will be very heavy rain producers, and any places that see multiple strong storms could pick up up to 2" of rain. Most of the area will likely see a nice soaking of .5-1" of rain.

Since we haven't had a soaking rain in about 10 days, the ground should be able to soak up a lot of the rain, but training storms could lead to flooding. Track the storms and heat by downloading the CBS 58 Ready Weather App.
