Hot, humid, and very windy

CREATED Jun 18, 2012

The heat is on in southeast Wisconsin, you'll need to find a way to keep cool because temperatures are soaring into the 90s today!  A warm front is also bringing in the humidity, so it will feel sticky today as well as hot.  The only thing helping keep the heat index down is the winds, they are strong from SSW at 15-30mph.  Some wind gusts could top 40mph which is why a wind advisory goes into effect from 1pm through 7pm for most of southeaster Wisconsin.  After 4pm there is a slight chance for a few showers or thunderstorms to develop mainly in the north, some of those could be strong to severe but not everyone will see stormy conditions.

A few T'storms may stick around tonight but most of us will just be stuck with sticky, warm and breezy conditions with overnight lows in the low 70s.

The heat and humidity stick around for Tuesday with low 90s for highs again.  The winds won't be quite as strong as Monday, but it will still be breezy.  Almost a repeat forecast for Wednesday with hot temps, humid conditions and breezy winds.

A cold front finally works its way through on Wednesday evening, bringing the next best chance rain.  That front will help drop temperatures and lower the humidity going into Thursday.  High 70s are back in the forecast by Friday with another shot of rain and storms by Saturday.

****WIND ADVISORY FOR ALL OF SE WISCONSIN EXCEPT FOND DU LAC AND SHEBOYGAN COUNTIES FROM 1PM THROUGH 7PM***
