July was a hot and humid month not only in Wi, but across much of the country. Most locations seeing temperatures 5 to 7 degrees above normal. A ridge of high pressure, sunny skies and a warm southerly flow started in early July, and didn't change for weeks. Anytime you break a record from 1936, it is something to talk about.
