Any rain should end quickly overnight, and we’ll be dry with partly cloudy skies. Given the high humidity, patchy fog could develop as lows settle into the 60s. The night should be quiet, but we’ll be watching for a round of strong storms late Monday.

The work week begins on a very summer-like note. Monday will be hot and muggy with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. The heat index could get into the mid 90s in spots. A spotty afternoon storm could pop up, but there will be higher chances at night. A cluster of storms should develop to our west during the day and track eastward into central Wisconsin late. Some storms could be strong-to-severe with large hail, heavy rain, and damaging wind gusts. The storms may not arrive until after midnight.

Any rain should exit the area Tuesday morning, and much of the rest of the day will be dry. It won't be as hot Tuesday, but will be warm for late August with highs in the low-to-mid 80s. It will still be humid, although not quite as muggy as Monday. Another round of storms is possible Tuesday night. Wednesday will be another hot, humid day with highs near 90. A cold front should push into Wisconsin later this week. It will lead to anothern chance for more widespread rain Thursday into Friday. Behind that front, look for a cool-down next weekend with lower humidity.
