Record Heat

CREATED Jul 16, 2012
  • Print

The forecast for Milwaukee, Waukesha and SE Wisconsin includes a heat advisory for the entire area until 9pm Tuesday as record heat moves back into the region for the next two days.  A SW wind will push highs to 100 today (record: 100 from 1887) along with high humidity.  There will not be a lake breezed this afternoon so the lake is hot as well.

Lows tonight will be in the upper 70s to near 80 and muggy...a bad not of sleep for those without air conditioning.

With the warm start, Tuesday will once again be hot and humid with highs near 100 (record: 98 1942).  A cold front moves into the region in the late afternoon with scattered storms to the northwest of Milwaukee.  Expect showers and storms by evening in  Milwaukee and an even better chance Tuesday night for scattered storms with lows near 70.

Wednesday will start out with scattered showers before noon and then afternoon clearing and highs in the lower 80s with less humidity...back to normal.

Thursday is the pick day of the week with highs in the upper 70s at the lake and lower 80s inland with low humidity.

Friday is back into the lower 80s and the weekend is sunny and more humid with highs in the upper 80s.
