Another heat wave - Heat Advisory begins Monday

CREATED Jul 15, 2012
  • Print

Another heat wave is cranking up in southeast Wisconsin; today will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-90s inland and low-90s at the lake thanks to an afternoon lake breeze.  It will be a little sticky but not oppressively humid.  Skies stay clear tonight and temperatures remain warm, in the low 70s.

We start the work week on a sunny and hot note with forecast highs in the upper 90s for everyone and a bit of humidity.  That's why the National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for all of southeast Wisconsin beginning at noon on Monday and lasting through 9pm on Tuesday evening.  Heat indices will be dangerously high, near 98-108 degrees during the afternoon hours so try and stay cool.

A cold front swings through Tuesday evening and into Wednesday morning, breaking the heat but also bringing a chance for that much needed rain and the chance for a few thunderstorms.  Temperatures level out in the low-80s for the rest of the week with mostly sunny skies.
