Not Quite 100

Definitely hot today, but no place nearby officially reached 100 degrees. Locally it was around 96 degrees (in La Farge), with 98 in La Crosse and Necedah, 99 in Winona and Medford, and 97 in Mauston and Fort McCoy. Further north, where dewpoints were much lower, a few locations did reach the century mark, including Eau Claire, Rhinelander and Superior, and 105 degrees in Hayward. The ground is also much drier in this region, so temperatures could get a few degrees warmer. Tomorrow should be much the same as today, but perhaps a few degrees warmer, so 100 degrees is still possible. However, dewpoints will be slightly higher tomorrow than today. This will make it a little more difficult to reach 100, but it will also create higher heat index values, and as a result a Heat Advisory has been issued. Monday still looks like it could be quite oppressive also.
