A Tornado Watch is in effect for Fond du Lac, Jefferson, and Dodge Counties until 11:00 p.m. tonight.

Storm chances will be on the increase  by lunchtime, into this afternoon and evening.  Some of these storms may be severe with large hail and damaging winds.  We also cannot rule out the possibility of tornadoes with today's storms.  It's one of those days to keep an eye on the skies, radar, and with us here at StormTeam4.

Highs today will be back into the 80s.  A persistent strong south breeze will gust up to 30 mph.  We'll likely have scattered strong storms through the night tonight.  It will remain warm with lows in the 60s, along with bit of humidity to the air.  A cold front passes through Friday morning, sending our temperatures downward for the rest of the week.  We'll keep a slight chance of shower in the forecast early Friday with the passing of the cold front.
