6:18 pm
moment, there's been diminishment associated with that. there's a secondary line as this cold front tracks, this line not nearly as strong as earlier, as it continues to track basically from west to east, we'll have to keep an eye on that. again, i don't expect anything like what we saw earlier today. in milwaukee county, from cudahy, last rain drops before they exit out over lake michigan, up to the north, though, the secondary line starting to p i fond du lac county, and in fact right from oakfield to just south of forest, extending south toward dodge county, and also into northwestern washington county, starting to see some more rainshowers, but, nothing nearly as heavy as we saw earlier, some hail across parts of our viewing area in southwestern jefferson county. but, the worst of it was actually in dane county. madison, the state capitol, this picture sent in from john.
6:19 pm
hand, golf ball sized hail falling for a brief period this afternoon in madison. meantime, a turbulent sky out there, from our waukesha county tower cam, as we look to the north northwest, we're seeing the southern end of the storms that we just saw on radar affecting fond du lac and dodge county. and then in port washington, more of those cumulus clouds, a turbulent atmosphere, as the storm system continues traversing southeastern wisconsin. so, in your weather we do still have rumbles rolling on through, it's going to turn into a terrific tuesday, though, as we clear out overnight tonight. and then get ready for a slow slide in our temperatures toward the end of the week. outside now, a dramatic slide in our temperatures from the 80s, very quickly, in the rain-cooled air to the 60s, 65 beaver dam. 64 west bend and waukesha, 71 in milwaukee. let's widen out the view, show you the view from space, and even heavier stuff, blowing up

illinois. again, southern end of the line of showers and storms associated with this cold front, which is pushing through our area right now. this is a very thin narrow line affecting us this evening, behind it, look at that, for hundreds of miles, clear skies, so quick clearing overnight is what we can expect. future forecast indicates that once we get rid of this rain, it's going to be rapidly improving, particularly, i think, after around 10:00 tonight. during the overnight hours, and into tomorrow, expect plenty of tonight, showers and storms out there, anything strong should rapidly be diminishing, decreasing clouds overnight. down to 58. tomorrow, maybe the best day of the next 7. sunny and warm with temperatures back up to near 78. here comes the "storm team 4" 7-day forecast, more showers and storms roll in late wednesday, and continue with that next storm system to affect us thursday, into friday, and on
