  • Wednesday, Clear HI 100°
    LO 79°
    Illinois EPA has declared Wednesday an Air Pollution Action Day. Sunny, hazy, becoming intensely hot and humid. Southwest winds strengthen to 12 to 24 mph. Some 25+ mph gusts in the afternoon. Temps may reach 100 degrees at the city's official observation station for the first time in 6 years. Afternoon heat index reaches the dangerous 106 to 114 range. Fair at night, oppressively warm and humid.
chicago is experiencing week 2 of consecutive 100 degree temps, and it looks like heat wave will continue til monday. after 4 years of living without an AC (aside from my studio) we finally broke down and bought a window unit for the bedroom last night. what a luxury! i've been staying indoors and keeping a vigil over the veggie garden.. watering the tomato plants up to 3x a day and shade covering the lettuces. i can't believe people are jogging in this weather! stay hydrated and take an umbrella for shade when walking. xoxo

Very glad you have the a/c now. We have similar weather here, though not quite as hot. Try to stay cool!
