Monday could be hottest day so far this year

Monday is shaping up to be one of the hottest days of the year so far — if not the hottest — with high humidity and winds from the south.

The Chicago Weather Center is predicting a high of 97, which would match the hottest day we’ve had this year, 97 degrees on May 27. The record high for this date is 98 set in 1954.

The high humidity could make it feel like 103 degrees in some places in the Chicago area.

High winds out of the south/southwest will contribute to the day’s high heat, and will be strong enough that the National Weather Service has issued a gale warning and a small craft advisory for Lake Michigan and a wind advisory for McHenry and Lake counties.
