Recapping the hottest day of the year and soaking Sunday storms
Sunday was the hottest day of the year and even though it was more humid the weekend before the heat indices reached the triple digits pretty much everywhere in southeast Wisconsin. The high of 95* in Milwaukee is the warmest of the year and warmer than any day last year. The last time we hit 95* was June 30, 2018.
Dew points on Sunday reached into the 100s for all of southeast Wisconsin with some as high as 110*. It was by far the hottest day of the year when it came to heat + humidity.
A robust line of storms moved across southeast Wisconsin during the afternoon and evening. The storms looked a lot more frightening than they ended up being. No severe weather was reported but a few wind gusts topped 40-50 mph. Heavy rain was the big story, but not for everyone. Our western, northern and southern counties saw the most rain with almost 3" in spots, but the Milwaukee area saw a lot less.
Our next chance for rain and storms arrives Tuesday afternoon and evening. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather app to track the storms.
