***SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH issued for the following counties until 3 a.m. Tuesday: Kenosha, Racine, and Milwaukee***
Showers and thunderstorms will redevelop Monday evening and continue into Monday night. A few storms may be severe with strong winds, hail, or an isolated tornado. We may also see flash flooding with some thunderstorms capable of producing very heavy rainfall. It's important to keep an eye on the changing forecast and remember "when thunder roars, go indoors." Also remember, never try to drive through a flooded area or roadway. A few rain showers or storms could linger until 2-3 a.m. before we dry out. Overnight lows will be around 70-degrees.
A Heat Advisory will begin Tuesday at noon for Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Jefferson, and Waukesha counties. In these areas, heat index values could reach 105 degrees due to heat and humidity. The advisory will expire at 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
Another round of storms is expected to move through SE Tuesday late afternoon and evening. Some of those storms could be strong to severe, so it will be another night to stay weather aware.
Ahead of rain and storms, Tuesday will be a very warm and humid day. Highs south of southwest of Milwaukee should make it into the low to mid 90s, with heat index values of 95-105°. The rest of the area will see highs in the 80s and high humidity.
Wednesday and Thursday will bring the chance for more scattered rain and thundershowers. Highs will be near 80-degrees.
At this point, it looks like we will dry out in time for Friday and the weekend.
