      Scattered thunderstorms have formed in our hot and humid air as a cold front is pushing in, and they are moving through this afternoon and evening. There is a SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH until 8 PM tonight. Threats with any of these storms include small hail and damaging wind gusts. The thunderstorms move out early tonight followed by decreasing clouds tonight. Warm air will be quick to return to western Wisconsin, with highs climbing into the lower 90s tomorrow afternoon, and it'll still be humid with dew points in the lower 60s. Tomorrow's record high is 93° from 1914. Sunday looks even warmer with highs in the low to middle 90s, which has a good chance at breaking the record of 91° set in 1969. Both days this weekend will see plenty of sunshine, and while it's likely we stay dry, there are very slight chances for a few storms popping up with the heat of the day. This trend continues for Memorial Day, with highs again near 90 but with a slightly better chance (though still just a slight) for a couple pop up showers or storms in afternoon. More rain and thunderstorm chances arrive midweek and last into next weekend. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
