Sunday will likely be the hottest day of our potentially long heat wave as highs approach 100 degrees, maybe falling just a degree or two short in some spots.

There also may be a slight cool down in temperatures during the back half of next week, but overall not much relief.

Consecutive days of risky heat and humidity will bring an increased risk for heat-related illness. Wednesday and Thursday will come down slightly to 92 degrees, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms both days. Highs will be in the low-90s with heat indices going over 100° away from Lake Michigan. And there is no immediate reprieve from the heavy heat and humidity.

The cooling properties of a fan only work if your skin is wet. Victims of this illness should be treated in the same ways as those with heat exhaustion but do not give fluids. If someone has these symptoms, you should call 9-1-1 immediately and take action to keep that person cool until help arrives. The state recommends staying inside in air-conditioned buildings and avoiding strenuous activity to decrease the risk of heat-related illness.

Dress for summer. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing to reflect heat and sunlight.
