It's about to get stormy here in the Midlands, especially while you're sleeping!  Your WIS First Alert Weather Team has declared tonight and Tuesday as Alert Days.

We're keeping an eye on a potent weather system to our west.  A warm front will move through the area tonight into Tuesday morning, giving way to scattered showers and storms. Some storms could be strong to severe. The biggest threats will be damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, and possibly an isolated tornado.  The worst of this weather will likely arrive overnight into Tuesday morning before 6 a.m. Otherwise, we'll see mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 50s.

Showers and storms will be around for the early commute Tuesday.  Again, any storms that are around could bring gusty winds, heavy rain and even an isolated tornado. Otherwise, as we move through the morning, this first round of rain and storms will move to the east, allowing for some sunshine to move in and help warm us up. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

As a cold front approaches the area by the afternoon, a second round of rain and storms could develop, especially for some of our southern counties. We'll keep watch of the forecast all day. Once the front crosses the area by Tuesday night, the threat for severe weather will decrease. A few leftover showers are possible. Low temperatures will be in the 40s.

By Wednesday, we'll likely see some wrap around moisture and cold air moving in, giving way to a few cold showers and possibly a few snow flurries. Those flurries would be in the extreme northern Midlands (for the counties adjacent to the North Carolina border).  Most of our area will see about a 30 percent chance of a cold rain. Highs will be in the mid 50s.

Dry weather moves in for Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain/Storms (50%). Lows in the mid and upper 50s. Winds: E-SE 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain/Storms (60%). Breezy. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: W-SW 10-20 mph.

Wednesday: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Cold Showers Possible (30%). Cool and Breezy. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: W 15-20 mph.
