One of the warmest weeks of the summer on the way

NOW: One of the warmest weeks of the summer on the way

Milwaukee (CBS 58)--Hope your air conditioning is working well.  You'll be needing it much of this week.  Look for a string of 80s and 90s.  And at times, it'll feel at least one hundred degrees, especially to start the week and finish it off.  Obviously, the humidity will be building with the temps. We're already seen four 90 degree days.  Many more coming in the next seven days!

As far as rain goes, the best chance of precipitation looks to be the middle of this coming week, mainly late Wednesday into early Thursday with the passage of a cold front from the north.  The remnants of Tropical Storm Barry should stay mostly south.  Keep in mind, with all the intense heat and humidity, we could see random, pop up showers and storms almost any day, making it hard to pinpoint where and when they'll fire.  We need the rain.  We're more than an inch and a quarter below normal for the month.

Make sure to stay hydrated during this very warm weather and check on your pets and elderly.  Make sure they have water and are in cool spaces.
