Heat Advisory Until 8:00 Tuesday Night

The National Weather Service says winds will pump hot and humid air into southern Wisconsin on Tuesday.

As a result, highs in the mid 90s will feel even hotter, with heat index values ranging from 100-105 degrees.

The heat index could be as high as 105 on Tuesday

The National Weather Service says a heat advisory will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. Tuesday. With the advisory in effect, the agency says:

  • No one should leave a child or a pet in a car, even for a short time
  • Everyone should stay hydrated, remain out of the sun and stay in an air conditioned building, if possible
  • Residents should check on relatives and neighbors
  • Strenuous activities should be moved to the evening

The City of Milwaukee Health Department also issued recommendations for hot weather safety on its website, and posted a list of local cooling spots.

Temperatures are expected to cool off to the lower 80s on Wednesday.
