Near record heat continues to start a new week

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The temperatures have been sultry the past few days. On Friday we shattered records by hitting 95° in Milwaukee beating the old record of 92° set in 1937. We have also broken two record warmest low temperatures on Friday and Saturday mornings with lows in the low 70s. 

We hit the 90s for a second day in a row on Saturday, but failed to break a record as the high topped out at 91° in Milwaukee before a lake breeze cooled us back into the upper 80s. The old record was 93° set in 1937.

Although temperatures will slowly cool the next 48 hours we could still get close to some records. Sunday's high looks to stay in the upper 80s which will be just below the record of 92° set in 1891. Monday might be more attainable with a record of only 89° set in 1933; the forecast is currently 86°.

It's a big sports day across the state and whether you are tailgating and watching the Brewers at 1:10 p.m. or the Packers at 3:25 p.m. make sure to drink plenty of water. Both Green Bay and Milwaukee are looking at highs in the upper 80s at the start of the game.
