'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

"All those days are really humid, essentially what it would feel like to be a hundred or higher", Wistar said.

The big weather story is the heat today and even tomorrow but with the risk for storms tomorrow continuing into Friday as a cold front pushes through tomorrow.

An excessive heat warning remains in effect for the Chicago area through Sunday evening, when severe thunderstorms are expected to create a cool front that could cause temperatures to drop by more than 20 degrees.

"Heat indices of these values could lead to heat illnesses particularly to those most vulnerable, " forecasters cautioned while urging people to stay hydrated, keep young children and animals out of locked cars, limit outdoor work and wear light weight clothing.

There may be scattered clouds this afternoon, but abundant sunshine will effectively add another 5 to 15-degrees to the heat indices, making conditions extremely risky.

As warm and unstable as we will be, you can bet showers will begin to fire with the peak heat of the afternoon. High: Low-90s. Mid 80s shore. Wistar said there could be spotty thunderstorms on Wednesday or Thursday, but they won't cool the air much.

Bethany Beach will see some clouds on Tuesday, with highs reaching just 80 degrees. Hot weather, especially long duration heat waves, is surprisingly high on the list of most risky types of weather in terms of injuries or deaths each year.
