Just when cool summer nights offered some proof that the season was ready to transition into chilly fall days — another near record-breaking temperature is expected for Thursday.
The record high for this date in Milwaukee is 96. Sussex is expected to actually hit 95, according to the National Weather Service.
Humidity levels are expected to be low throughout the afternoon, the weather service said, which lowers the heat's "deadly afftects."
On Friday, Sussex has a high of 89.
