Today's Outlook

Hot & humid Tuesday

Today will be the warmest day of the year so far with highs near 90 degrees across southeastern Wisconsin.  When you factor in high dew points in the low 70s however, it will feel even warmer with heat index values in the mid to upper 90s so stay hydrated if you are going to be outdoors for long.  A cold front swings through late this afternoon and evening, sparking off a few isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, some may be strong to severe with heavy downpours, hail and strong wind gusts possible.  Rain chances end overnight and skies will be clearing heading into Wednesday.
 
The humidity and temps both drop for the middle of the week with low 70s and sunshine both Wednesday and Thursday.  Wednesday will feel cooler due to a breezy NNE wind sustained at 10-20 mph.  Temperatures and the dew points begin to increase on Friday with mid-70s and sunshine expected.
 
This weekend will feel more like July again with highs back in the upper-70s and low 80s and scattered shower and storm chances throughout the weekend, though it won't be a washout.  Another midweek dip in high temps is expected behind these showers and storms that will linger into Monday.
 
From John Malan:

 Many locations in western Wisconsin hit ninety degrees for the first time on Monday, including La Crosse and Eau Claire. The summer continues to be cooler than normal with Milwaukee through this date about three and a half degrees below normal for monthly temperatures. The last time Milwaukee experienced a ninety or above was September 10th of last year when the thermometer hit 95 degrees. Ninety-five was a popular number as it also occurred on August 27th and 30th and July 17th and 18th. It was also the warmest temperature overall of 2013 for Milwaukee.

Overall there were nine days in the nineties for Milwaukee last year, which is right around normal. The prior year was the warmest on record for Milwaukee, and we experienced nineteen days in the nineties, most coming in June and July. The greatest occurrence of nineties or above occurred in the summer of 1988 with thirty-six days!
