Today's Outlook

Summer's Disappearing Act

Even though some spots in southeastern Wisconsin hit 90 degrees on Tuesday, Mother Nature just didn't want Milwaukee to get there, despite feeling warmer than that due to the humidity.  Yesterday's cold front brought a few showers and storms to southeastern Wisconsin but as it moves east it is taking summer with it.  Highs drop by nearly 20 degrees today, into the low 70s despite mostly sunny skies.  It will feel colder, especially along Lake Michigan due to a breezy NNE wind sustained around 10-20mph.

 
The wind calms tonight and under clear skies, temperatures will drop into the lower 50s, nearly 10 degrees below average.  Patchy fog is possible overnight as well.  Thursday will be a beautiful looking day despite temperatures remaining below normal, but the winds will not be as strong and the humidity will be low.  A few showers are possible in the west Thursday night but the better chance for wet weather comes on Friday evening as warmer and more humid air starts to move back in.
 
July weather returns for the weekend with the temps and humidity both increasing to make it feel more like summer again.  Showers and storms are possible off and on throughout the weekend but it will not be a washout as many dry hours are expected.  Next week looks seasonably cool with some midweek showers anticipated.
 
Thursday will be sunny and mild with dew points in the fifties so the air will remain comfortably dry. There will also be plenty of sunshine once again across much of the state. The winds will switch from easterly to southerly for the next couple of days and that will bring in more moisture and the chance for showers and thunderstorms from late Friday through Sunday in the Milwaukee area.
 
So far in Milwaukee the warmest temperature for the summer season was eighty-nine degrees set on Tuesday. On today’s date back in 1934 the high temperature in Milwaukee hit 105 degrees, and through today is still the warmest on record for our city. One reason the high temperature doesn’t get warmer is Lake Michigan, and unless there is a very strong west to southwesterly wind the lake breeze generally stops the rising temperature.
 
The warmest temperature for the whole state is 114 degrees set at the Wisconsin Dells also in July but back in 1936. The warmest temperature for the United States and the whole world was also recorded during this month. On July 10th in 1913 the thermometer hit 134 degrees. It is interesting to note that the world’s coldest temperature was also recorded in this month on the 21st back in 1983 with 129 degrees below zero.
