...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT
SATURDAY...

* Heat Index Values...Ranging from 105 to 115 degrees today and
  Friday, and between 100 to 110 degrees on Saturday.

* Timing...Through Saturday Evening.

* Impacts...Increased risk for heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
  The very young, elderly, those without air conditioning, and
  people participating in strenuous outdoor activities are the
  most susceptible. Vehicle interiors can reach lethal
  temperatures in a matter of minutes. Never leave pets,
  children or the elderly unattended in parked vehicles.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures and high humidity will occur.  This
combination will lead to a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are likely.  Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check on relatives and
neighbors, especially the elderly.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.  When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening.  Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke.  Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments.  Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.  Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9 1 1.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Illinois...northwest Illinois...west central Illinois...east
central Iowa...northeast Iowa...southeast Iowa and northeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Thunderstorms will continue across the Outlook Area this morning,
especially north of Interstate 80. Gusty winds, small hail and
locally heavy rainfall may occur with the stronger storm cells.
The heavy rain may produce ponding of water, as well as urban and
small stream flooding especially in areas of repeated storms.

There will be at least a low chance for more strong storms moving
down out of Minnesota and Wisconsin later tonight, affecting
areas mainly north of the Highway 30 corridor. Gusty winds and
heavy rain would be the main threats from any storm that manages
to make it down this far south. There is a marginal risk for
severe weather today and tonight for areas generally along and
north of Interstate 80.

An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect for the entire
Outlook Area. High heat index readings of 100 to 110 are expected
today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

An Excessive Heat Warning continues in effect for the Outlook
Area through Saturday. Dangerous heat index readings of 100 to
110 are expected.

The next main chance for thunderstorms will occur late Saturday
and especially Saturday night, as a cold front moves through the
region bringing an end to the dangerous heat. Early indications
are that strong to severe storms will be possible, as well as the
threat for heavy rain and flash flooding. Much of the Outlook
Area has been placed in a marginal risk for severe weather
Saturday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed today and tonight over portions
of the outlook area, especially north of Interstate 80.
