GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin can expect one more day of warm, humid weather before a cold front moves in and cools things down.
The northwest was the state’s hot spot Tuesday, with highs in the 90’s in some places. The mercury hit 92 near Grantsburg in Burnett County.
It’s a sticky morning throughout the state, with temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s and humidities above 80 percent in most places. It was 75 in La Crosse at 5 a.m.
The National Weather Service has posted a heat advisory for nine counties in the northwest from noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday. Those counties are Eau Claire, Chippewa, Dunn, Pepin, Pierce, Saint Croix, Polk, Barron, and Rusk. Forecasters say the heat index could hit 101 in those areas.
All of Wisconsin could see 90 Wednesday before the cold front brings showers and thunderstorms to the region Wednesday night. Some of those storms could be severe.
Once they clear out, a much cooler day is predicted for Thursday with highs around 80. Dry weather is expected until Saturday, when storms could return generally in the northern half of Wisconsin.
Another warm-up is forecast for Sunday, when some areas could see 90 degrees again.
