Heavy rain, severe storms possible Saturday


Your WIS First Alert Weather Team continues to track strong to severe storms through the Midlands on this Sunday. The main line of storms leftover from last night, will begin to push into our westernmost areas around 9-10 AM Sunday. The greatest threats are large hail and damaging, gusty winds. Rain chances really pickup mainly after 2 AM. As high pressure to our south moves offshore Tuesday, temperatures will warm with above normal temperatures expected Wednesday and Thursday. In other words, this weather pattern looks pretty conducive to some strong thunderstorms every 5-7 days with these slicing cold fronts.

After tomorrow a freeze is possible Tuesday morning before warmer temperatures in the 60s and even 70s return. Winds Sunday morning could be as strong as 40 miles per hour, which could lead to uncomfortable conditions for people traveling on area bridges. Temperatures will drop down into the low-40s Sunday night, with highs Monday afternoon just making it up into the mid-60s.

The rain and storms that woke us up on Saturday morning has exited the region.

Rain and storms will gradually clear out from the west late Sunday and usher in much cooler air! We will stay dry the entire day with only a 20% chance of showers late in the day.

"We are asking you to be very cognizant of flooding under overpasses", he said.

"A serious weather system isn't guaranteed by any means, but it's something to keep a close eye on this afternoon", said Moss.
