Holiday Weekend Weather: Lukewarm With Spotty Wetness - May 16 Wisconsin Tornado Was EF-3, On Ground For 83 Miles

Temperatures will warm up in the coming days; not quite warm enough for a dip in the lake (unless you're exceptionally brave) but the weather should cooperate over the weekend, at least most of the time.
