3:00 PM Update:
The warnings have expired for the storms in Washington and Ozaukee counties. Storms will continue to fire throughout the rest of the afternoon and move toward Milwaukee between 4 pm and 6 pm.
High heat and humidity are fueling pop up showers and storms this afternoon. While a watch has not been issued, we do expect storms to continue to fire during the peak heating of the day. Currently we have a Severe Thunderstorm Warning our for Washington and Ozaukee counties until 3pm. These storms are working east at 25mph so heavy rainfall is a good likelihood. Wind gusts to 60mph along with quarter size hail are possible.
Showers and storms will continue to be a possibility this afternoon and evening.
The other issue is the high humidity and heat. Feels like temps are near 100 in spots.
