Hot, Hazy, Humid, Stormy
The heat and humidity will be very high today across Milwaukee and SE Wisconsin with highs near 90 and heat indices over 100 degrees in the shade. The wind will also be very light making it more uncomfortable. A heat advisory is in effect until 7pm for Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Walworth, Racine and Kenosha Counties due to the dangerous heat and humidity.
The good news is that there are scattered T’storms around SE Wisconsin and clouds and rain are helping to keep the temperatures down a bit north of Milwaukee. The threat of storms is in the forecast from now until about 8pm when the cold front passes through the area. Some storms may become severe with large hail and damaging winds.
Tomorrow is much more comfortable thanks to NE wind keeping highs near 80 and much lower humidity. The air will still have some stickiness the rest of the week, but nothing like the past few days. Highs will be in the lower 80s for the rest of the week making for perfect conditions at the State Fair. There is a slight chance of T’storms on Friday and again on Sunday, otherwise it is dry and normal for this time of the year.
