MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The National Weather Service says it’s been four years since Wisconsin has had the potential for the oppressive heat and humidity expected Thursday and Friday.

The weather service issued an excessive heat warning for much of the state because heat indices are expected to climb into the triple digits. The last time such a warning was issued was in July of 2012.

The state Public Service Commission issued a reminder Wednesday that Wisconsin law prevents a utility from disconnecting service to an occupied dwelling when heat advisories are in effect.

The utility is also required to try to reconnect service to an occupied dwelling that has been disconnected for nonpayment when the resident says there’s a potential health threat.
