The National Weather Service has stated hat the heat index in Chicago is expected to reach 115 degrees on Saturday.

Additionally, storms will move slowly due to the major ridge of high pressure bringing the heat wave to the east. Slow-moving thunderstorms will cause possible flash flooding.

The same, or actually a bit worse, is happening on Sunday, with a forecasted high of 96 and a heat index of 103.

Peak heat indices will remain in the upper 90°s to near 100° for the next several days. Even with temperatures in the 80s, temperatures inside a vehicle can reach over 100 degrees in 20 minutes. Those looking to cool down are urged to visit one of the cooling centers or pools at a Boston Centers for Youth and Families location.

SUNDAY - Sunny and Dangerously Hot and humid, Heat Index 100+.

The heat will stick around during the first week of July. Victims of this illness should be treated in the same ways as those with heat exhaustion but do not give fluids. If you plan on spending time outdoors, such as at the beach, pool or ballpark, should keep in mind to use sunscreen.

Also, a must: wearing light-colored, light-weight clothing and drinking plenty of water. Also, 911 should be immediately called, as heat stroke is a medical emergency. The state recommends staying inside in air-conditioned buildings and avoiding strenuous activity to decrease the risk of heat-related illness. This is unsafe for anyone working outside and for those without air conditioning, it can be life-threatening.
