‘Excessive’ heat warning continues through late Saturday for Chicago

A HEAT ADVISORY is in effect starting 8AM Sunday through 8PM Monday.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 85.

The increased cloudiness and possibility of showers/thunderstorms Sunday, as a cool front makes its way east across our area is expected to restrict high temperatures to the lower 90s with heat indices more in the 100 to 106-degree range.

"The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a risky situation in which heat illnesses are likely", the National Weather Service said.

In some areas it could feel as hot as 95-100 degrees Monday and Tuesday, prompting a hazardous weather outlook in Maine's interior, according to the weather service. Slightly cooler weather is forecast for Monday, but temperatures are expected to remain close to or above 90 through the Fourth of July and possibly into next weekend.

A heat advisory is issued when the anticipated heat index- a formula based on air temperature and humidity - reaches or exceeds 100 degrees. Heat stroke is an emergency - call 9 1 1. South wind 5 to 7 miles per hour.

The strong ridge of high pressure at the surface and aloft should finally start to break down by the latter half of next week allowing the heat to ease somewhat. This should take temperatures in to the lower/middle 90°s and send the heat index back to the upper 90°s to lower 100°s. Breezy. High of 91.

MONDAY | Partly cloudy with a few t'storms possible. The National Weather Service and AccuWeather both are predicting a chance of showers and thunderstorms sometime after 2 p.m. Wednesday.
