Still Hot...

Thunderstorms did develop overnight across northern Wisconsin and took a scary southward turn at one point, prompting a severe thunderstorm watch for the western half of Wisconsin. Obviously, this was not supposed to happen. Storms did manage to stay just east of the area, but lingering clouds keep temperatures down in the morning. There was some partial clearing in the afternoon, and temperatures "only" managed the middle 90s, as opposed to the upper 90s that were predicted. Tomorrow should be a different story. The axis of the extreme heat should move across the region during the day, and southerly winds should bring a steady stream of hot and humid air northward. The result should be temperatures near 100 degrees, with heat indices of 110 to 120 degrees. A heat advisory remains in effect through Tuesday. Currently, it is still 81 degrees outside, with a dewpoint of 77 degrees. Needless to say, it will not cool off much tonight.
