Excessive Heat To Hit The Stateline Late This Weekend
The Rockford Area will experience the warmest weather of the year late this weekend, into early next week.
If you have yard work to do, you might want to get it done by Friday evening. The National Weather Service in Chicago says that Stateline temperatures will rise to the low 90's on Saturday and jump into mid 90's by Sunday.
The National Weather Service says the only good news is that high humidity will not be apart of the warm up.
Several days with highs in the 90s appear likely, especially Sunday through Tuesday. Current indications are that humidity won't play a significant role in this heat wave.
No excessive heat warnings have been issued yet, but it is possible that they could be issued as we get closer to the weekend. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will be the hottest days.
Is it odd that Rockford has been this warm so early in June? Not really. Last weekend Rockford high of 90 degrees this past Sunday.
If you don't have air conditioning, here's a cool tip for you. Take your window fan and blow the air OUT of your window on a hot day. Don't blow the hot outside air, in. If you have a ceiling fan, make sure the fan is circulating counter clockwise.
