Hot August Start

It is August 1st and we begin the new month with a very hot forecast. Today, high near 93°, Tuesday, high 95° and Wednesday, hot again with a high of 95°. Slight storm chances on Thursday and Friday with highs in the lower to middle 90's. When will we see some relief? Not for a while. Probably October.

My August facts and figures were released yesterday. View that post here.

Chicago went from one of the driest to one of the wettest July's in history in just a couple of days. Read about that here.
