Heat tightens grip on area

Unseasonably warm temperatures are forcing people to find any way they can to stay cool in northeast Wisconsin.


Last week, temperatures touched 90 degrees for the first time this year with an over 80-year-old record high of 95 degrees reported in Green Bay on Saturday. The average high temperature in June is 72 degrees in Sturgeon Bay, 71 degrees in Kewaunee, and 76 degrees in Green Bay.


That has kept businesses like Ultimate Air in Luxemburg busy with calls of air conditioners not working properly. Owner Jeff Blemke says many of the outdoor units they have serviced in recent days had some component failures, but others were just dirty or infested with bugs and rodents. Once your air conditioner is serviced, he recommends you keep it at a consistent temperature so you do not put extra stress on the unit.

He also recommends making sure your filters are cleaned or replaced as another way to save your air conditioner from some extra work. The Weather Channels reports that Door County will see some relief when forecasted highs do not touch the 80-degree mark. Parts of Kewaunee County will have to wait a little longer with temperatures close to 90 this weekend and only two days below forecasted below 80 degrees over the next 12 days.
