424 am CDT sun Jul 15 2018

... More heat and humidity expected today and Monday...

Very uncomfortable humidity levels will combine with afternoon
temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s to produce heat index
values in the 100 to 105 range in beween any areas of thunderstorms
today and Monday. An increase in the overall cloud cover should
keep readings from getting quite as high as they did on Saturday,
but it will still be quite hot and humid.

The very Young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and
those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the
most susceptible to the heat. Also, car interiors can reach
lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
