A strong area of low pressure will pull out of the Rockies & begin to influence our weather starting tomorrow.
We will see gusty SE winds on Friday as a warm front approaches from the south. A few showers are possible by afternoon west of the Fox Valley.
As the warm front moves overhead overnight we will see showers & thunderstorms.
Much warmer weather will surge into the area on Saturday with temps near 80 degrees.
The Storm Prediction Center has also placed N.E.W. under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms. If the storms can get going, all types of severe weather would be possible.

FRI: Increasing clouds & seasonable. Winds will become quite gusty & a few showers/storms are possible late as a warm front approaches.

SAT: Sun & clouds. PM storms. Some could be strong to severe. High will be near 80 degrees.
SUN: Rain/storms, windy & colder. Afternoon temps will range from the 40s NE to the 70s SW.

On/off showers & storms will continue into next week with highs mainly in the 60s & 70s.
