Good Friday morning! Here’s your personally-researched weekend weather preview for east-central and southern Wisconsin:

Active Advisory: Dense fog advisory remains in effect until 10 am CDT this morning.

Forecast Summary: Areas of morning fog. Warm and humid with scattered thunderstorms through Tuesday. Tropical summer is here!

Scientific Synopsis: Very warm and humid air has moved in from the south and will create a tropical atmosphere around here through next week Tuesday. There’s a stalled area of low pressure in the Rockies, which will continue the flow of humid southerly air ahead of the low through early next week. Once this low finally moves through Tuesday, we will finally get some relief as cool air moves back in behind its cold front on Wednesday, but until then it’s swimming pools, air conditioners, and less complaining about how it never really got that warm this summer.
