Heat wave expected this week. Muggy, too.

From JSOnline:

A warm front is forecast to push its way into Wisconsin and boost temperatures into the mid-80s along with humid conditions, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday is expected to be relatively balmy with a high of 72 in the Milwaukee area, though dew points will begin creeping up later in the day. But then it'll get hot.

High temperatures Tuesday are expected to hit 86 degrees with dew points around 70.
As a rule, dew points of 60 to 65 start to feel sticky, with 65 to 70 feeling really humid.

An area of low pressure approaching from the Great Plains will sweep into Wisconsin on Monday followed by a switch in wind direction from the south, funneling hot air into the region, Sarah Marquardt, a National Weather Service meteorologist based in Sullivan, said Sunday evening.
