Late season blast of heat hits Chicago
The heat and humidity has settled in over Chicago for the last unofficial week of summer.
Highs in the 90s are predicted today and Tuesday with humidity potentially pushing the heat index into the 100s, according to the National Weather Service. There’s a good chance temperatures both days will approach the record highs of 97, both set in 1973. Tuesday looks like the hottest of the two days.
