MILWAUKEE -- (WITI) -- The National Weather Service has downgraded the excessive heat WARNING to a heat ADVISORY -- which is now in effect until 7 :00 p.m. on Friday, June 22nd. The counties affected include Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Racine, Kenosha and Walworth. Now is a good time to remind folks of the dangers that come with leaving pets (and children, for that matter) alone in locked cars.
A car sitting in the sun can heat up 19° every 10 minutes -- so it doesn't take long for tragedy to strike.
