The City of Milwaukee has issued a Heat Health Advisory for Tuesday and Wednesday, as the National Weather Service forecasts a Heat Index as high as 105.
After a few weeks of dry and comfortable air, things started to change this afternoon with downpours and severe storms that went from Madison to Milwaukee with large hail, torrential rain, winds up to 60 mph and nonstop lightning. Those storms quickly moved out and the rest of the evening is muggy as the warm front lifts northward. We stay in the mid 60s tonight with high humidity and patchy fog. Tuesday will see the hottest temp of the year so far with a high of 94 and a heat index of 105...in the shade. There will be a lot of sun and some wind.
Tuesday night is very warm and muggy with lows in the mid 70s (warmer than normal high) and steamy air. Wednesday remains dangerous with highs in the low to mid 90s and heat indices to 105. Severe storms are possible late Wednesday ahead of the next cold front. That front cools us down into the mid 80s on Thursday and much drier air. Friday and Saturday are beautiful with highs in the 70s and low humidity. Sunday is in the 70s with a few showers late in the day.
