MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A cold front is expected to push through southeastern Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon, September 1st, bringing with it a possibility of storms, and there is the potential some of these storms could be strong.

Temperatures Sunday were in the low to mid 80s, and a wind shift Sunday brought a cold front across the state — and with it came a chance for thunderstorms.

Storms were expected to enter southeastern Wisconsin Sunday afternoon, beginning around 2:00 or 3:00 p.m.

The cold front was expected to exit the state around 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. Sunday.

FOX6’s Rob Haswell says winds should shift to the northwest overnight, and temperatures and dewpoints will drop for Monday — on the unofficial last day of summer.

On Monday, we’ll see a northern breeze, and temperatures below average, with sunshine.

This Afternoon: Partly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms into the evening. High: 82°. Dewpoint in the mid 60s. Wind: Variable 5-10 mph

Sunday Night: Showers and thunderstorms ending and skies slowly breaking up and clearing.  Low: 60°. Wind: N 5-10 mph

Monday (Labor Day): Mostly sunny, cooler, and less humid. High: 72°. Dewpoint dropping into the mid 50s. Wind: N 8-15 mph

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, comfortable. Morning low: 54°. Afternoon high: 76°. Dewpoint in the mid 50s.
