Hot start to July, will it continue?
It hasn’t been an overly hot start to summer here in southeastern Wisconsin, yet the temperatures have been toasty as of late. The highs in summer have been running about a degree above average; however, so far in the month of July, we have had only one day below average for the high, and all of the other day’s at least hitting average and above. This trend will continue today as the daytime temps will increase into the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. If we hit 90 degrees, it will be the eight time so far in 2018.
A cold front will change things up a big for the middle of the week. Don’t expect the temps to fall below average though; we are anticipating the highs to stay in the low 80s tomorrow and Wednesday, and then going back up in the mid and upper 80s by week’s end. Another surge of moisture is expected with this warm up late this week.
The Climate Prediction Center continues to indicate above average temperatures for the next 6-10 days for the Great Lakes and the East Coast. The trend looks to be heat for the foreseeable future, folks!
