ThursdayAugust2

The low pressure will be moving to the south today as the high pressure moves in from the north. A cold front will bring slightly lower temperatures for Thursday before we begin to heat up as we move towards the weekend. Thursday expect scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon to evening hours. Chance of precipitation will be 50%. Friday the high pressure area will have moved into the Chicago area, bringing clear skies and a brief spout of cool temperature before the oven starts heating up for the weekend. Temperatures will begin to rise under clear skies for Friday night into Saturday and Sunday.
With the rise in the heat index to 92-99 during the weekend, remember to keep you, your children and pets hydrated with water. Remember, although it tastes and feels good going down, that Bud Light you just got at the liquor is not a hydrater. Just the opposite. Drink plenty of water if you will be working or having fun in the outdoors this weekend. Please leave your pets at home in a nice air conditioned or sheltered environment if you venture out. Leaving a child, cat or dog in your car at any length of time during such high temperatures is dangerous. Temperatures in a car can often be 10-15 degrees higher than the outdoor temperature.
