Hottest temps in a decade

NOW: Hottest temps in a decade

The warmest in a decade! That's what Tuesday was across southeast Wisconsin. Both Milwaukee and Racine hit 100*! Kenosha came close at 99* and the rest of southeast Wisconsin was well into the 90s.

In Milwaukee it was the first time we've hit 100* since 2012 when we had three days in the 100s during the warmest month on record - July of 2012. 

Despite hitting 100* in Milwaukee on Tuesday we did not break a record. So both hot days this week with the middle 90s Monday and 100* Tuesday fell short of the previous records.

We only average hitting 100* in Milwaukee once every nine years so we were a bit overdue. When we do get into the 100s the average first 100* day is right around now during the last week or so of June. The official long term average is June 23.
