Discussion:

Clouds should gradually break up Tuesday with milder temperatures. In fact, it will turn very summerlike late this week into the weekend with warm and humid conditions. No frost is expected through at least next Tuesday. We could get a few scattered showers and thunderstorms into western Wisconsin late Tuesday night as a front approaches with the chance spreading across the rest of the state Wednesday. A few of those storms Wednesday afternoon may have gusty winds or hail. Thursday looks partly cloudy and dry. A warm front will push through late Thursday night into Friday morning with a few t-storms possible. Then it should be mainly dry the rest of Friday into Saturday. However far northwest Wisconsin might see some storms late Saturday as a cold front to the west edges a bit closer. The rest of the region could be impacted by that later Sunday into early next week. It will turn cooler next week with possibly some frost by Wednesday the 27th. Forecast confidence is moderate the next few days.

Forecast:
