By tomorrow a warm front will develop to the south of here. It will begin to move northward and milder temperatures will fill back in. That warm front will pass through southern Wisconsin early Saturday. Behind it, high temperatures will soar into the lower 60s. This increase in temperature coupled with approaching low pressure will lead to increased instability in the atmosphere. Rain and thunderstorms will be likely Saturday evening. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong or severe with gusty wind and large hail. NBC15 meteorologists have declared Saturday a First Alert Weather Day due to this threat.

Today: Partly sunny and cooler. High: 33. Wind: N 5.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low: 24. Wind: Calm.

Friday: Mostly cloudy. High: 42.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain. High: 62.
