Strong but brief showers and storms have popped up this evening. The majority of them have been north of I-94 but it did cause the roof at Miller Park.
As of 8:45 p.m. the strongest storm was located in Fond du Lac County where the airport recorded a wind gust of 47 mph. That storm is moving east towards Sheboygan. Now that the sun has set the storms should decrease in coverage.

We are still watching a cold front draped across our area. You can see the clouds associated with the front in northern Michigan and southwest Wisconsin but nothing much here. That front will be the focus of any storms that pop this evening.
It was a warm day too! Milwaukee hit 90° around 2:30 p.m. for our 8th day in the 90s this July. That doubles the average number of 90s in July.

All of southeast Wisconsin remains under the marginal risk for severe weather on Saturday. The best timing for storms will be during the afternoon and evening from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. If you plan on being out during this time make sure you're checking the CBS 58 Ready Weather App frequently.
Storms will form along a cold front and drift south. The biggest threats will be gusty wind, small hail and some heavy downpours.
Temperatures Saturday are still expected to reach the middle to upper 80s with some humidity so it will feel like the 90s in most spots.

Hot and humid conditions return for Saturday. There is a lot going on this weekend with German Fest and the Air Show. Highs in the upper 80s are likely with the heat index over 90!
The best timing for the storms will be from 2 pm till 6 pm. While overall severe weather is not expected, some storms could produce small hail and gusty winds. An isolated strong to severe storm is possible. Storms should weaken after sundown with more 80s on Sunday.
The Thunderbirds perform at 3 pm, so there could be some storm chances around the city at that time.
