We have one more hot & steamy day on tap before showers and storms fire up and the heat backs down later this week. Expect highs in the low 90s Tuesday with the heat index pushing triple digits again. A complex of severe storms will dive southeast out of Illinois Tuesday, our severe storm threat is bumped up- a slight to marginal risk from west to east across the Commonwealth. Although the round will be weakening watch for late afternoon & evening storms that could produce damaging wind gusts, hail & heavy rain. This is the beginning of an active phase with daily shower & storms chances through Thursday and progressively cooler highs following.
