More rain and storms likely for Tuesday

A few showers and storms rolled through southeast Wisconsin on Monday. Tuesday's rain chance is higher with some spots already getting some downpours Tuesday morning with more scattered rain likely throughout the day. After the morning round of showers, scattered storms look best from late morning through the evening. Here's readycast for 5 PM showing showers and storms still moving through the area.

After 7 PM the chance for rain starts to go down so we may be in store for a dry sky during both the Brewers and Bucks games this evening. For both games expected temps in the mid 70s at the start of the games then cooling to the low 70s by the time the games wrap up. The humidity will linger.

As has been the case over the last week, rain totals will be highly dependent on thunderstorms. Those that see the strongest storms will likely get close to an inch of rain but the rest of us may just see a few tenths of an inch of rain up to a half inch. 

With humidity staying high on Tuesday dew points will hover around 70* so it will feel fairly tropical most of the day. Muggyness remains high on Wednesday before humidity falls on Thursday heading into the holiday weekend. 

The humidity will also give enough fuel for a few thunderstorms to be strong. Some downpours, small hail and gusty wind will be possible with any storms that develop, especially during the afternoon and evening. All of southeast Wisconsin is in the marginal (level 1) risk for severe storms.
