Quiet and seasonal through Friday, but heat and humidity return for the weekend
A majority of the showers and storms missed southeast Wisconsin on Tuesday, but there was some severe weather in western Wisconsin where at least one tornado touched down near Chippewa Falls/Cadott. Wisconsin has now had 9 tornadoes this year, 5 of those occurring since Saturday.
Although we haven't had a soaking rain in a week, Milwaukee is still over an inch and a half above normal for rainfall this month.
Mainly dry weather is expected as we finish out this week. Our next best chance for any storms looks to arrive Saturday night or Sunday morning.
By then the heat and humidity will have returned to the Badger State with highs climbing back in the low 90s after finishing the work week on a seasonal note.
After not recording our first 80 degree day until Memorial Day this year, we've had no shortage of 80 degree days this summer. Since the beginning of meteorological summer on June 1st, Milwaukee has spent 37 days in the 80s or warmer, including today. That's tied for the most 80 degree days on record through July 22nd.
