WEATHER APP: iOS | Android by next week. Monday looks to bring the scariest heat indices ranging from 95-100+. Humidity will be on the increase as well with dew points popping into the lower 70s starting this weekend - that's downright tropical!

A very weak cold front without a lot of convergence or cold air will slice through the Upper Midwest Friday evening bringing a marginal chance of severe weather for the overnight and early morning hours of Saturday.

The main risks will be hail, gusty winds and brief heavy downpours. Throughout this heatwave, isolated chances for showers and storms are sprinkled throughout the next work week.
