Heat advisory active for parts of Wisconsin on Sunday
The National Weather Service will have a heat advisory active for much of western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota on Sunday.
Counties in the Newsline 9 viewing area part in the advisory include Ashland, Iron, Price, Taylor, Clark, Jackson, Adams and Juneau Counties.
The advisory begins at noon Sunday and is set to remain active until midnight Tuesday.
A heat advisory is issued by the National Weather Service when a stretch of hot weather is expected. In addition to high temperatures, humid conditions are expected as well.
According to the advisory from the National Weather Service, heat index values greater than 90 degrees are possible in the advised area on Sunday.
The heat index value is a calculated figure that combines the actual air temperature with the humidity, and offers a "feel-like" temperature when considering the combination.
Temperatures look to remain very warm through Tuesday, before a cold front is forecast to slip across the state. That could provide some relief from the heat, but temperatures are still set to remain warmer than average.
The normal daytime high temperature in Wausau on Sunday is 76 degrees. The forecast high is 92 degrees.
