Morning thunderstorms brought mainly heavy rain and plenty of lightning. After the storms moved out clouds are breaking apart to give us a partly sunny sky, although the sun will make for a very warm day with more storms possible
Hot, hot, hot…
A heat advisory and excessive heat warning are in effect for the Coulee Region through Friday (refer to image for specifics).
The dew points will sit within the 70s through Friday evening, icky. This will make it feel like up to 110 degrees at times, especially into the afternoon/evening. Drink plenty of water, take breaks in the shade and check on your neighbors!
With abundance of moisture there is another chance for showers and thunderstorms tonight. This round does not look like it will be widespread. But a few strong isolated storms are possible, mainly along and north of I-90. Main threat will be hail and strong winds, with a short window of tornado possibility.
A cold front will sweep through the Coulee Region Saturday to finally bring relief to the area. High temperatures will be near average and dew points in the low 60s. But the cold front will bring a disturbance for the chance of thunderstorms into Sunday morning.
