As of Saturday afternoon, much of our area was already under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center has us at a level 2, which means we could see scattered severe storms. Some areas, including Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, are expected to get a quarter-inch of ice accumulation by Sunday morning.

The possibility of tornadoes or hail are listed as low, but with the enhanced risk, isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out. Winds remain strong, with gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour, and the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says the winds will only slowly subside.

Our next chance for rain and storms arrives Friday. Breezy with highs in the upper 70s.

Rainfall totals could be between 2-3 inches with isolated higher amounts if the storm cells train along the cold front from south to north. Cool temperatures in the beginning of the week will give way to a warming trend midweek through the end of the work week.
