Today's Outlook

Muggy Monday

The humidity sticks around overnight with clear to partly cloudy skies and warm lows generally around seventy degrees. Tuesday will likely be the warmest day of the year so far as highs climb to around ninety degrees but it will feel like temps are in the low to mid-90s when you factor in high dew points. We still have yet to hit 90 degrees in Milwaukee this year, the last time we went without touching the 90 degree mark during the summer was back in 2008. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible during the day however most of the action will occur as a strong cold front swings through Tuesday evening, which may bring strong to even severe thunderstorms and potentially heavy rain overnight. On Wednesday skies clear and a breezy NNE wind drives the mercury way down into the lower 70s. The humidity will disappear by Thursday but it will still be cool as high pressure moves in from the north, and highs stay in the low-70s. Warmer air starts to pour back in on Friday under mostly sunny skies. It will feel a little more like summer again by the weekend with upper 70s for high temperatures. Some unsettled weather is possible but it won't be a washout of a weekend.

 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!
