MADISON (WKOW) - Sunny and very warm conditions prevailed this 4th of July, as high pressure remains near the Great Lakes Region.
High temperatures approached 90 degrees across southern Wisconsin.
Hot temperatures seems to be a trend for the 4th of July. The last three years show high temperatures reaching the 90s or 80s, at least above the average high. It was bit different in 2016, with temps not as warm.
Daytime mixing allowed dewpoints to stay in the 60s Saturday. Expect it to feel a bit muggy outside, it may be a little uncomfortable for some.
A similar day is expected Sunday. Skies will remain clear, with times of sunshine and winds will remain calm. Highs in the low 90s.
The first chance for isolated storms and showers arrives Monday, most likely in the afternoon or evening. Chances continue throughout the week due to a decent amount of moisture in the atmosphere, doubled with heat.
High temperatures in the low 90s becomes a trend all next week.
Heat index values will be even higher, making it feel like mid-to-upper 90s. Possibly triple digits towards the middle of next week.
