County Beaches Won't Open Until After Monday's Hot Temps

Unfortunately, the beaches in Waukesha County won't be open for the steamy weather Monday. Read the details on when the local watering holes will open.

With temperatures forecast to hit 90 Monday for the second straight day, it would be nice to hit the local beach on a holiday day off from school and work.

No such luck, because Waukesha County's beaches don't open until Saturday.
