WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Drier and cooler weather predicted for Labor Day
For the first time since last weekend, the heat index failed to reach 100 in western Wisconsin yesterday. Onalaska had the hottest misery index with 97, in a region where it got close to 110 on Tuesday. Most of Wisconsin was under heat warnings and advisories for much of the week – but they’ve all expired. Yesterday’s highs were generally in the 80’s, only about 5-to-10 degrees above the normal for the date. It was still relatively warm overnight.
