MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- It was a hot and sticky Sunday, July 7th, with a high for the day at 88 degrees. FOX6 Meteorologist Vince Condella says we were able to reach 90 degrees on Sunday -- the first time this summer we've done so. The work week begins with temperatures in the high 80s, and a chance of storms for the first half of the week.
Condella said Sunday night was expected to be mostly dry -- with a slight chance of showers and storms coming after midnight.
FOX6 Meteorologist Brittney Sager says the weather gets more active as we head into the work week, with several chances for thunderstorms Monday, Tuesday and a slight chance Wednesday morning.
Condella said Sunday night that these showers and thunderstorms could produce locally heavy rain, but that nothing severe was expected.
As of right now, the rest of the work week and the early part of the weekend looks to be dry and less muggy, as a high pressure system heads our way from southern Canada -- but obviously, because we are so far out, that could change.
Sager says the Canadian high pressure system should bring more seasonable temperatures and lower humidity as we end the work week.
