Wind Advisory in Effect for Brookfield Tuesday

Nasty weather is expected today: with wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour or more, heavy rains storms and a chance for minor flooding in some areas.

It appears that Mother Nature has at least one more severe weather event up her sleeve as the summer season comes to an end later this week.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for Brookfield, as well as much of the the rest of the state.

The advisory will be in effect from noon Tuesday until 6 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Wind gusts are expected to reach up to 50 miles per hour or more, with sustained winds of some 20 to 30 miles per hour throughout the day.

The weather service warns the high winds could lead to downed limbs and trees in, as well as scattered power outages.

"This potential will be enhanced in areas of heavy showers or thunderstorms," meteorologists reported.

'Isolated Tornado' Possible

In a hazardous weather outlook alert also issued for Tuesday, the weather service warns that the storm system could also bring with it "heavy rainfall with isolated flash flooding," as well as the potential for an isolated tornado.

The nasty weather is expected to be at its height late Tuesday afternoon in to the early morning hours.

Extended Forecast

The rain and the clouds are expected to clear out by the early afternoon Wednesday, with a high in the low 70s

Thursday is expected to be a picture-perfect last summer day: sunny and in the mid 70s — a weather trend that is expected to continue into at least Saturday night.
