A mini-heat wave kicks into high gear Monday and Tuesday.
We will be in the upper 90s Monday and near the record high of 100 on Tuesday. The humidity will rise as well with a heat index (feels-like) temperature between 100 and 105 both days.
A weak front approaches Tuesday evening and Wednesday. This brings a chance of storms with a cool down to the mid 80s on Wednesday and Thursday.
Another extended heat wave looks to rebuild for next weekend and the following week.
BONUS - A massive solar flare was ejected toward Earth on Thursday and a geomagnetic storm is underway creating the northern lights also known as Aurora Borealis. This heavenly spectacle may be visible as far south as Alabama. Here in Chicago the best chance to catch them is away from city lights and in clear skies Monday night.
