Episode Narrative Gusty southerly winds ahead of a cold front trailing from low pressure tracking across southern Canada drew a hot and humid air mass into southern Wisconsin on July 1st. High temperatures climbed into the middle to upper 90s and combined with dew point temperatures in the lower to middle 70s to produce heat index values between 100 and 110. Thunderstorms over northeast Wisconsin that moved out over Lake Michigan during the morning spread clouds and onshore winds over counties near Lake Michigan. Due to the cooler temperatures and lower dewpoints, the atmosphere near the lake didn't recover to heat advisory levels after the winds shifted back to out of the south to southwest direction.
Event Narrative Hot temperatures in the middle 90s and dew points in the 70s brought heat index values up to 102.
