MADISON (WKOW) – Temps soared to some of their highest levels of the year Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday will be quite similar, just less breezy.
Make sure to take frequent breaks in the shade or in the air conditioning when working outside. Keep drinking water (alcohol keeps you dehydrated), and check the back seat before you leave your car. Never leave kids or pets in hot cars. Temps can soar to deadly levels in just a few minutes.
A few showers and storms linger around the region this evening, especially farther south. Overnight, we stay muggy and warm in the upper 60s.
As the stalled boundary meanders south, an isolated afternoon or evening storm is possible. The highest threat for this will be in SW Wisconsin.
A few more storms possible in the afternoon and evening on the 4th of July as another pulse of energy moves in from the Northern Plains.
Have a back up plan for any outdoor events, as you may have to dodge some storms.
Friday also looks stormy, but the main cold front will sweep through at night giving way to drier, more comfortable conditions over the weekend. Click here for your complete 27 Storm Track forecast.
