It’ll be a warm and toasty Memorial Day today with the warmth lasting into Tuesday as well. Look for Mostly Sunny skies today and Partly Sunny skies on Tuesday with highs in the upper-80s to perhaps near 90°. The record high today is 97° and on Tuesday it is 93°, so these records should be safe. A cold front will advance through the area Tuesday night, which will allow cooler air to filter in for the remainder of the week. If you don’t like the heat, these days look beautiful with generally lower-70s for highs and lows near 50° at night. Dry weather, featuring a mix of clouds and sun, is favored Thursday through Saturday as well before a chance for Showers and Thunderstorms arrives next Sunday. The normal high is 75° or warmer this week, so most of the days in this forecast are running a bit cooler than normal to begin the month of June.
Now let’s back up to the cold front Tuesday night. It is a strong cold front since highs will be flirting with 90° on Tuesday but then drop to near 70° for the remainder of the week. Showers and Thunderstorms will be possible with this cold front, mainly Tuesday night into Wednesday. Some stronger thunderstorms appear possible, but this timing is not favorable for an organized severe weather setup due to the overnight nature of the chance for storms. The better risk for strong to severe thunderstorms looks to be in Wisconsin on Tuesday before we watch them potentially approach our area Tuesday night. The chance for severe weather is low, but the chance for a thunderstorm in general is also on the lower end, so we will keep an eye on it.
