Heat and humidity sticking around for the foreseeable future

It's been a hot and humid 4th of July across southeast Wisconsin with highs in the mid to upper 80s. There are zero concerns in the weather department this evening for any fireworks displays as skies will be mainly clear and winds will turn calm.

Today marked the 8th day in a row that Milwaukee has reached 80 degrees or warmer.

It's still not close to the record streak of 22 days from the summer of 1921, but there's no sign of relief from the heat any time soon. Highs will be around 90 degrees each of the next 5 days.

Factor in the humidity, which will be worst Tuesday through Thursday, and it will feel closer to 95-100°.

There's a pretty good chance this heat lingers through at least the middle of July. The Climate Prediction Center's 8 to 14 day temperature outlook has a 60-70% chance above normal temps stick around through July 19th.
