It was a pretty typical July day on Monday with moderate summer
humidity and temperatures near the seasonal normals. Skies were
mostly sunny across Wisconsin with weak high pressure over the area.
High temperatures ranged from 76 at Manitowish Waters to 88 at
Boscobel. The normal high temperatures for this time of year range
from 79 to 84.
Winds on Monday in general were light westerly.
Skies were mostly clear and winds light overnight under high
pressure. These conditions led to some fog in a few areas later in
the night. Low temperatures ranged from the mid and upper 50s
north, to the low and mid 60s south.
High pressure is expected to bring dry weather to the state
through the morning hours today, with showers and thunderstorms
possible in the west this afternoon.
Showers and storms are then likely tonight and Wednesday as a low
pressure system moves through the region.
A chance for showers and storms will continue through late week
and into the weekend as more low pressure systems move through.
Temperatures will be within a few degrees of normal through
Wednesday. It is then expected to get hot and humid by late in
the week, with heat index values likely exceeding 100 degrees many
places Thursday and possibly also Friday. An Excessive Heat Watch
remains in effect across the southwest half of the state for
Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will return to near normal
conditions by Sunday.
High temperatures today will be in the low to mid 80s most places,
except for cooler temperatures near the Great Lakes.
Lows tonight will range from the low and mid 60s in the northeast,
to around 70 in the west.
