More heat and humidity before storms and relief arrive

After a steamy Sunday more heat is on the way Monday before a cold front arrives cooling everything down. Saturday's high temperatures were underwhelming. Thanks to Friday night storms and a lake breeze highs only reached the 80s for most. Sunday was a different story with a brisk southwest wind and lots of humidity allowing highs to reach the low 90s.

In Milwaukee the high officially hit 93° just one degree shy of the record from 1994. 

Although still hot, high temperatures Monday are not expected to hit records. Highs will reach around 90° but with dew points in the low 70s it will feel close to 100° once again. 

The heat breaks Monday afternoon and evening as a cold front moves through from north to south sparking thunderstorms. Those storms are expected in the Milwaukee-Waukesha metro area around 5 p.m. and could linger south of I-94 for most of Monday night into Tuesday.

Parts of southeast Wisconsin are under a "marginal" risk for severe weather on Monday. Isolated strong storms may be possible with strong wind and hail but heavy rain will likely be the biggest threat. 

A lake breeze returns the rest of the week with highs in the 70s lakeside and around 80° inland. Scattered showers and storms may be possible on multiple days.
