Additionally, a wind advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. for Lake, Kane and McHenry counties, the weather service said. Southwest winds are expected to gust near 45 mph.

The weather service is predicting a high of 95 degrees Tuesday and 94 on Wednesday, when thunderstorms are likely. Temperatures are only expected to be in the low- to mid-80s the remainder of the week.

The record high for June 19 is 99, and for June 20 it's 98 degrees, set in 1983 and 1947, respectively, the weather service said.
