Most of the Chicago area has finally caught a break from the extreme heat, and even see a rip of thunder and a torrent of rain before the day is through.
The temperature is once again expected to rise to 100 degrees on Tuesday, and a heat advisory is in effect for the whole area.
Get ready for a day that would even seem hot by the standards of mid-July.
Chicago is being dragged through another day of intense heat, with temperatures again soaring toward the upper 90s.
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.
