Dry conditions prevailed across the area during the early morning
hours. Clouds drifted over much of the area by around sunrise,
with the thickest clouds over northern Wisconsin, and some clear
skies hanging on toward the southern Fox Valley. Temperatures at
3 AM were mainly in the 60s, with a few middle and upper 50s over
far northeast Wisconsin.
There is a chance for showers and thunderstorms today, but most
locations look to stay dry for much or all of the day. The best
chance to see the storms appears to be across central Wisconsin
later this morning and early afternoon. Severe weather chances
are low today; however, heavy rain is possible with any storms
that move through.
Very warm temperatures and increasing humidity levels are
expected today with highs in the 80s to around 90 degrees and
heat index readings mainly in the upper 80s to middle 90s. Hot
and very humid conditions are expected on Thursday with high
temperatures climbing into the upper 80s to middle 90s and heat
indices in the middle 90s to around 105 degrees. Readings this
high could cause health issues if precautions are not taken.
Expect slightly cooler temperatures near the Lake Michigan
shoreline. Along with the heat and humidity, there will be a few
chances for showers and thunderstorms.
Very warm and humid condition continuing Friday into Saturday
