*****HEAT ADVISORY FOR ALL OF SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN THURSDAY: 12PM-8PM*****

The heat has arrived in southeast Wisconsin for this Wednesday and start to Summerfest.  Under blue skies temperatures will warm to 94 degrees in Milwaukee with strong winds from the SSW at 10-20mph.  That means there won't be much relief from the heat even at the lakefront.  Winds calm down tonight but temperatures stay warm, in the mid-70s with increasing humidity.

Thursday will be the hottest day of this heat wave with highs in the mid to upper 90s.  It will feel worse thanks to dew points hovering around 70 degrees, making it feel more like 100-105 degrees during the afternoon and evening hours.  Because of the hot temps and humidity creating dangerous heat conditions, there is a Heat Advisory in effect from noon until 8pm for all of southeast Wisconsin.  Take appropriate measures to stay cool, hydrated and out of the heat for long periods of time.

A weak cold front will bring a few more clouds on Thursday and has a slight chance to spark off a shower or even a thunderstorm but most locations won't pick up measurable rain.  What the front will do is drop highs back into the low-90s for Friday and get rid of some of the mugginess.  The weekend looks to still be hot with high forecast near 90 both days with the best chance for rain on Saturday night and Sunday.

Stay cool!
