One More Day of High Heat Then Showers & Storms

June 14, 2022 4p

(WGTD)---Lake Michigan's natural cooling power was a big draw Tuesday to the lakefront areas in Kenosha and Racine as temperatures soared into the mid-to-upper 90s elsewhere.

Thanks to a south wind, temperatures along the lakeshore were 10-15 degrees cooler.

A Heat Advisory remains in place through Wednesday evening, at which time showers and storms--some possibly severe--are expected to appear on the horizon.

The normal high for this time of year is 77. The record high for this date is 101, set in 1987. 

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Ozone which will remain in effect until 11:00 PM Tuesday.

This advisory affects people living in the following counties: Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan.

Due to elevated temperatures and southerly transport of ozone and ozone precursors, the air quality index is expected to reach the UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS level. People with lung disease (such as asthma), children, older adults, and people who are active outdoors (including outdoor workers) should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion.
