It's going to be a rainy, stormy start to Father's Day weekend. Luckily, Father's Day is going to be be a much drier day.


Despite the high rain chances, Saturday is not going to be a washout. It won't be raining everywhere all day, so you won't have to cancel your outdoor plans with dad. However, if you are going fishing or playing a round of golf with dad then your plans will likely be interrupted by a shower or storm. Scattered to widely scattered showers and storms impact southern Wisconsin Saturday afternoon and evening.

Even though the threat is very low, a strong storm capable of frequent lightning, heavy rain, gusty wind and hail will be possible Saturday afternoon and evening. Southern Wisconsin will be under a Marginal Risk (1/5) of severe weather.

The rain will start to taper off from west to east across the area late this evening. Most of the area will likely be dry midnight.

If thunder roars, go indoors!


Father's Day will be the better day to play a round of golf with dad or fire up the grill. Most of the area will likely remain dry on Sunday. There will be a chance of isolated showers and storms in the afternoon, though. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid 80s.
