Summer continues its July trend into August, and the National Weather Service has made it official, issuing a heat advisory beginning at 1 p.m. and continuing until 7 p.m. Tuesday. The advisory includes the southern portion of the state, with Milwaukee, Waukesha and Jefferson counties and all counties to the south included in the area.
Temperatures are expected to reach the lower to mid 90s, with heat indices reaching 100-105 degrees.
An approaching front will usher in the risk for strong or severe storms later this evening, but will bring much-needed drier and cooler air behind it. Temperatures for Wednesday are expected to reach normal highs in the low 80s.
