Average summer highs are on the decline

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The warmest days of the year, per the averages, are waning in southeast Wisconsin.

Today is the last day with an average high at 81 degrees…until June 29. That's 317 days away! But averages will continue at 80 degrees through the 24th of the month. That date also holds the latest record high in the triple-digits. The record high that day made it to 100 degrees, back in 1948.

And while we continue with more modest highs in the 70s for the foreseeable future, we have been treated to a decent amount of heat this summer season. You can see equal days in the 70s and 80s this season. Plus, 11 days in the 90s. That’s two more than the average amount per season, which is nine days. And more than that, something that only happens about once a decade here in our area, triple-digit heat! We started the summer solstice with a bang, hitting 100 this year! Quite the feat!

Looking down the pike, no big heat coming our way. Near normal temps looks to continue for the remainder of the month.
