The pre­dicted warm-up across south­ern Wis­con­sin this week­end could get a lit­tle too hot, fore­cast­ers at the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice are warn­ing.

“Con­fi­dence is in­creas­ing that hot tem­per­a­tures and po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous heat indices will im­pact south­ern Wis­con­sin this week­end,” ac­cord­ing to a sit­u­a­tion re­port is­sued early Wed­nes­day by the weather ser­vice of­fice in Sul­li­van.

“Tem­per­a­tures will climb into the 90s this week­end, with heat indices ap­proach­ing or ex­ceed­ing 100,” ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.

“Lake Michigan will limit lake­side temps to the up­per 80s on Satur­day, but even lake­side ar­eas may reach into the mid-90s on Sun­day,” ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.

On Sun­day, heat indices — the com­bi­na­tion of high tem­per­a­tures and hu­mid con­di­tions — could top 101 de­grees in Mil­wau­kee and Madi­son.

The hot con­di­tions could linger into Mon­day.
