The heat may feel a little less oppressive today than in it has for much of this week, but temperatures will still be sticky and uncomfortable as they top 90 degrees.
It’s been hot and sticky for days already, but the worst is yet to come.
Sunday was only the beginning. Conditions will be sticky and miserable all week, and officials are advising Chicagoans to watch out for their neighbors who might be at risk.
The forecast high for today remains 97 degrees. But conditions will be humid and sticky, and the heat index will make it feel like it’s 100 to 105 degrees.
The last time the official temperature exceeded 100 degrees was six years ago, but on Friday, it might happen again.
Record-setting temperatures could be coming today, the second day of sweltering heat and humidity in Chicago.
