_____________________________________________________________________________

As of 2 p.m., temperatures are 87-93 with heat indices 90-100.

Today looks hot & very capped with lots of sunshine & 90-96 with heat indices 94-104.  If any storm can pop through the cap, it would be along the lake breeze front moving into our northern counties.

In the boiling heat, a few isolated to spotty storms are possible each afternoon-evening Monday through Thursday.  They will be very hit or miss.

Highs will run 92-99 with heat indices 99-108.  Overnight lows will run near 70 to the mid 70s.

Monday...

Tuesday......& the same thing applies Wednesday & Thursday......

It stays quite hot right into next week, but at least we may get an MCS with a squall line or part of one into the viewing area Friday evening-night.  Some data has suggested it will impact areas mostly southwest & south of our area however.  It will depend on the track of the MCV from Iowa & Missouri.

The heat wave may become very intense in the Plains next week with 105-110 central Nebraska to Oklahoma.

We do not look to get a decent cold front through our area with any cool-down of much consequence until after July 15 (it appears at this point).  We will keep you updated!

Just count on one hot July until we see a larger pattern change by the first few days of August!
