Heat and humidity continue with isolated pop up storms

NOW: Heat and humidity continue with isolated pop up storms

Monday was a warm and humid day with a good soaking rain in some counties. Highs reached the upper 80s to around 90 for all of southeast Wisconsin and dew points were in the low 70s so it felt pretty tropical in the mid 90s with the heat index. During the afternoon and few clusters of storms and rain moved through. The storms were slow moving and rain really tallied up in some spots with over 2". Highest totals were in southern counties.

Although any rain we get on Tuesday and Wednesday won't be as widespread, we could still get a few pop up showers and storms thanks to the heat of the day. The best chance for those is in the afternoon and evening but it looks like most stay dry as the chance is pretty low.

Despite decreased rain chances, the heat and humidity aren't going anywhere. Forecasted high temps over the next five days stay within a few degrees of each other in the middle to upper 80s. A few isolated spots could hit 90* each day and a better chance for widespread 90s arrives next week. Independence Day looks the warmest in the upper 80s.

Dew points in Tuesday are similar to Monday in the low 70s feeling pretty tropical. The humidity decreases a little bit for Thursday and Friday but with dew points in the middle to upper 60s it's still going to feel pretty humid.
