Heat relief and storms arriving this week

‘Excessive’ heat wave to hit Chicago in time for Pride Fest weekend

Weekend Outlook: Hot and humid for Father's Day

Relief from the heat starts Tuesday.

The heat warning will be in effect until Monday, when temperatures are expected to reach a high of 94 degrees, according to the weather service. With several days of showers and storms possible.

An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect in Cook County on Father's Day.

Father's Day will be a touch cooler but not by much for the metro. Temperatures in the 80s. The heat index tops out between 97ºF and 102ºF Saturday afternoon with a slim 10% chance of a few isolated downpours (actual thermometer-read high likely around 94ºF).

Combine those highs with dew points and heat index numbers climb into the mid 90s to even triple-digits during peak heating hours.

Showers and storms will be possible in western Kansas this evening, coming to an end overnight. As that front swings through during the evening, it could trigger a line of showers and storms to develop. If you can not afford an air conditioner, spending some time each day (during hot weather) in an air conditioned environment affords some protection.

Forecasters said Sunday's outlook varies just a bit - sunny skies with a high in the mid-90s.

That front will stall across the state keeping off and on rain chances in the forecast through the rest of the work week. "The heat builds the storms stronger than they would be in the winter months".

After a Father's Day sizzler around northern OH, we'll remain nice and toasty for your Sunday night with muggy lows only dropping into the low to mid 70s.
