Severe Weather: More Heat, Storms, Then Some Relief

Heat advisory goes into effect at 1pm, followed by strong or severe storms, but relief is on its way, say forecasters.

Summer continues its July trend into August, and the National Weather Service has made it official, issuing a heat advisory beginning at 1 p.m. and continuing until 7 p.m. Tuesday.  The advisory includes the southern portion of the state, with Milwaukee, Waukesha and Jefferson counties and all counties to the south included in the area.

Temperatures are expected to reach the lower to mid 90s, with heat indices reaching 100-105 degrees.

An approaching front will usher in the risk for strong or severe storms later this evening, but will bring much-needed drier and cooler air behind it. Temperatures for Wednesday are expected to reach normal highs in the low 80s.

What are the plans for Tosa's Night Out if it storms?????

Brad, as of 1:30 p.m. the police said that Tosa's Night Out would go on as planned regardless of the weather. They also said, "Bring rain gear." It is possible that some things could change if we get severe thunderstorms with lightning. Some outdoor activities could be curtailed, and as both an experienced musician and pyrotechnic-type, I would neither play the Tosa Tonight concert nor attempt to launch fireworks in a lightning storm. The Muellner Building in Hart Park will be open for as many as can crowd in.
