...DANGEROUS HEAT IN SOUTHERN WISCONSIN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...

.A HOT AND HUMID AIRMASS WILL EXPAND INTO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN ON
THURSDAY. HEAT INDICES ARE EXPECTED TO GET DANGEROUSLY HIGH
THURSDAY AND POSSIBLY FRIDAY AS A RESULT.

GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS ON THURSDAY WILL OFFER A LITTLE RELIEF TO
THOSE OUTDOORS...BUT IT WILL BE A HOT WIND.

THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY ABOUT WHETHER FRIDAY WILL REACH WARNING
AND ADVISORY CRITERIA...DUE TO THE POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS
THAT COULD COOL THINGS DOWN A BIT. BUT...CONFIDENCE IN THAT
SCENARIO IS TOO LOW...AND THEREFORE WE WILL KEEP THE WARNING AND
ADVISORY INTO FRIDAY EVENING.

SOMEWHAT COOLER AND LESS HUMID CONDITIONS ARE ANTICIPATED FOR THE
WEEKEND.
