The current temperature here in Brillion, WI is 94F. However, with the heat index, it feels more like 106F. And right now, we're under an Excessive Heat Warning -- in effect until tomorrow afternoon.
According to the National Weather Service, an excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are possible. To avoid such situations, drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, and stay out of the sun.
This is, without a doubt, the hottest day so far this summer. Apparently, it's also some of the hottest weather we've seen since July 1995. Back then, on the 13th and 14th, temperatures in this area climbed above 100F. We're not there yet this year, but we're close. And that's hot enough in my book.
If you're outside... stay cool.
