AM Heavy Rain Gone, Tracking More Storms For Tonight

Widespread 1-3" of rain fell over the area this morning, leading to localized flash flooding in some places. That line will continue moving into WI as we head into the evening hours. We will get a break from the rain, only for more to arrive later tonight.

This next round could produce a few more strong/severe storms as it moves in with a cold front, out of the NW. Timing for this activity will be from 9 PM to 2 AM. The late arrival & all the clouds from the morning activity will really limit our severe potential, however it is still a tad too early to completely rule out a few strong/severe storms. I'll be monitoring this chance as we head into the evening. Right now strong winds, heavy rain, and some hail look to be the main threats with the stronger storms.

Storms will clear out by daybreak on Sunday, and skies should clear out & temps stay in the mid 80s behind the cold front. Quiet weather stays with us the first half of the week, then the atmosphere gets a little unsettled for the second half, as showers & storms stay in the forecast Wed.-Fri. 

The good news, temperatures won't be as hot or terribly humid as they were at the end of last week! Look for highs to cool off to the upper 70s to lower 80s next Wed. through Sat.!

Have a great Saturday evening everyone! Keep it on ABC 6 News on air & on line for the latest information on this evening's storm chance!
