Michael Fish's NBC26 Storm Shield weather forecast

Today, a low pressure will be tracking away from the area, but on the backside of it, we still could see a hit or miss shower. Highs will be cooler with readings in the mid-70s with breezy conditions. Tonight looks cooler and more comfortable if you feel like cracking open your windows. Lows will bottom out in the low-50s. A few 40s are possible in normally colder locations. Wednesday looks like a beauty with highs in the upper-70s, low humidity and a nice breeze out of the WNW. Wednesday night will be comfortable again with lows in the mid-50s. Thursday also will have plenty of sunshine and highs around 80. Chances of T'storms return on Friday and Friday night. Most of this activity should be out of here by Saturday morning, then the humidity cranks back up with a chance of a T'storm on Sunday afternoon again. Most of the weekend should stay dry.

Two sisters remembered after fatal boat crash1m38s

Two sisters remembered after fatal boat crash

A boat collision on Lake Winnebago has left two young women dead and has also sent the girls’ mother and father to a local hospital. The wreck happened on Saturday evening, just after 8:30, near Neenah. Lauren and Cassandra Laubs were just 20 and 26 years old. They were out with family on Saturday night when tragedy struck. Investigators are still looking into how the Laubs and another boater’s watercraft collided just east of Panes Point. The only thing that’s for certain right now is two young ladies’ lives were cut short. 20-year-old Cassandra was studying to be an educator at UW Milwaukee. Her big sister spent the last two years in Africa with the Peace Corp. The two were said to be grabbing some dinner on the lake with their parents when the crash happened. Family friends say the mother was badly injured in the crash.

NBC26 Storm Shield Weather Forecast

A relatively well-organized area of low pressure is heading our way. We'll see a few showers/storms overnight. The question remains where the heaviest batch of rain will end up. The latest model guidance keeps the heaviest of the rain in southern Wisconsin, missing most of our area. Since it could move back north, Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties remain under a Flash Flood Watch for this evening into tomorrow morning, though this area may get missed by the heaviest of the rainfall. Lows tonight will bottom out in the mid-60s. Tuesday, this system will be tracking away from the area, but on the backside of it, we still could see a hit or miss shower, or rumble of thunder. Highs will be cooler with readings in the mid-70s with breezy conditions. Tuesday night looks cooler and comfortable if you feel like cracking open your windows. Lows will bottom out in the low-50s. A few 40s are possible in normally colder locations. Wednesday looks like a beauty with sunshine and highs in the upper-70s.

Gino Recchia NBC26 Storm Shield Weather Forecast

Skies will increase in coverage tonight as our next storm system begins to move into our area. Temperatures will drop into the lower 60s with calm winds. Showers and thunderstorms will bring beneficial rainfall to the area Monday with a storm system lifting up from the south. Showers and storms will carry over into Tuesday morning and even perhaps the afternoon before we dry out later Tuesday evening. Rainfall amounts right now appear to be highest farther south you go with some locations potentially picking up several inches of rainfall. A flood watch has been issued for Fond Du Lac And Sheboygan County because of this impending storm system and the potential for heavy rainfall which could result in flooding. A period of dry weather will return on Wednesday through Friday with highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s. Another chance of storms could return next weekend but there remains some questions regarding the timing and the coverage.
