Turn the A/C on this morning, because by the afternoon temperatures will hit the mid 90s with uncomfortable humidity... making it really feel like nearly 100°! An excessive heat advisory has been issued for the Northwoods from this afternoon until 8pm. Overnight temperatures will only fall to the mid 70s and remain muggy.

Tuesday an excessive heat advisory will likely be expanded throughout the rest of N.E.W., as it will be feeling like 105°. Be sure to stay hydrated and cool and to not over exert yourself!

Late Tuesday and early Wednesday a small cold front pushes through, dropping our temperatures into the mid 80s with a bit more tolerable dew points and humidity.

Sunshine stays abundant until the weekend, when some rain chances return to the forecast.
