Pleasant to end the week before heat and humidity return for the weekend
After a break from the 80s on Tuesday, temperatures were about 10 degrees warmer on Wednesday, topping out in the mid 80s in Milwaukee. It was our 17th day in the 80s or warmer this month.
Going back to June 1st, there have only been 15 days in Milwaukee that have been cooler than 80 degrees, which is tied with 2012 and 1949 for the fewest days on record through July 23rd.
Temperatures will remain in the 70s today, but get back to around 80° on Friday before climbing into the upper 80s to low 90s Saturday and Sunday.
By then, humidity will have returned to oppressive levels, similar to what we experienced last weekend. The worst of the humidity is expected on Sunday.
That's when we'll have our next best chance for any rain or storms as a cold front slowly makes it's way through the state, clearing the area early Monday morning. Rain and storms look to be slow moving, and with plenty of moisture in the air, heavy rain will be possible.
While we haven't had a soaking rain in Milwaukee in over a week, we're still around an inch and a half above normal for rainfall this month.
