EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH Starts Saturday Morning; High 88°F Friday

EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH ACTIVATED SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY EVENING

Heat from the Plains will begin building in Chicagoland on Friday, and a thin line thunderstorms with a little punch passing Rockford at 5:20 a.m. may or may not hold together as it slowly moves east toward Arlington Heights and the northwest suburbs. The Cardinal expects the storms will stall and/or die off before reaching Arlington Heights. This morning’s low of about 65°F feels cool and/or comfortable.

Weather Radar (also nexrad.chgowx.com) shows a long, thin line of slow, eastward-moving thunderstorms running from north of Madison, WI and south of Peoria … and passing Rockford at about 5:20 a.m. Parts of the line are diminishing and parts are strengthening. The storms are expected to die off before they reach the northwest suburbs, but it is possible they could hold together and reach Arlington Heights about 8:00 a.m.

* IMPACTS…The extended duration of heat, combined with nearly
full sunshine, and oppressive warmth even at night will lead

Residents of the city of Chicago can call 3…1…1…to
request well being checks for elderly friends or family

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

An Excessive Heat Watch means that a prolonged period of hot
temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and
high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in
which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids…stay
in an air-conditioned room…stay out of the sun…and check up
on relatives and neighbors.
