The wet weather pattern continues today for all of southern Wisconsin. The morning showers and thunderstorms have diminished, but it will remain very humid through the day. High temperatures will be in the middle 70s along the Wisconsin/Illinois state line, but much cooler to the north.
Another round of rain will move into southern Wisconsin late this afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west. This second round of rain may contain strong thunderstorms capable of producing gusty winds and heavy rain.
Rain totals tonight will be one to two inches across southern Wisconsin. This is in addition to the several inches that has already fallen this week.
Showers and thunderstorms will end overnight with dry weather expected by daybreak on Friday. Cooler and less humid air will spread into southern Wisconsin for the start of the weekend. High temperatures will be back in the 70s for a couple of days.
It's still officially summer, though. Temperatures will climb back into the 80s by Sunday and remain there through most of the week. Humidity levels will be increasing as well. Outside of a chance for rain Saturday night and early Sunday, the extended forecast looks dry.
