Air Quality Alert
Air Quality Alert Extended Through Wednesday
Sweltering heat and unhealthy ozone levels are on tap for the rest of the day Saturday – a brew that usually is not good news for people with asthma.
The normal high for this date is 81 degrees, but the high Friday will be 10 degrees higher than that.
The showers Thursday morning have fizzled out, and the clouds will give way to some sunshine and seasonably hot temperatures.
Thursday’s extreme heat brings double trouble to the Chicago area. Not only is the heat dangerous, but the air conditions could make it hard for some people to breathe.
If you’re sick and tired of the heat and storms, you won’t be too thrilled with the weather for the beginning of this work week.
