Warmer temps and a little humidity give way to storm chances Tuesday night
After a cool start to the week with a lake breeze keeping temperatures in the 60s for most, a warm up arrives Tuesday. Thanks to a breezy southwest wind temperatures will soar through the 70s this afternoon with most seeing highs in the upper 70s. A few 80s are possible.
For the first time this season, the Muggy Meter is making a return. No real mugginess is expected either Tuesday or Wednesday but with dew points in the low 60s some humidity will be noticeable.
All of that heat and humidity will increase our storm chance. A cluster of storms is moving in from the west Tuesday morning mainly set to impact our southern counties through noon. After a break during the afternoon, another round of showers and storms will be possible tonight. The best chance for rain will be after midnight.
Because of the extra fuel provided by the warmth, a few of the overnight storms could be strong to severe. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of southeast Wisconsin in the marginal risk for severe weather. Damaging wind and some hail will be the main threats.
