central Illinois through Wednesday. Temperatures climbed into the
low 90s for most locations, while heat indices topped out around

A line of severe thunderstorms in northern Illinois Wednesday
evening will continue to move to the east southeast into
northwestern Indiana. This line of storms is traveling along a
frontal boundary positioned in northern Illinois. As this boundary
remains stationary over the next couple of days, heat and
humidity will continue to be the major impact to the Midwest. In
addition to the hot conditions, some thunderstorm development will
be possible as moisture in the air combines with high
temperatures to provide unstable conditions.

Low temperatures tonight will be very muggy and linger in the low
to mid 70s, providing limited relief from the heat. Highs
tomorrow will climb into the mid to upper 90s. Heat index values
will approach 110 degrees during the late afternoon hours.
