Good Morning, everyone. Personally, we thought yesterday's forecast was much ado about nothing. Today's forecast reminds us to act like we've been here before. If we reach Skilling's forecast high of 86 it's supposed to easily be the warmest day of the week. But it's also supposed to be muggy, making it feel even more like mid-July. There's also expected to be some severe thunderstorms across 40 percent of the greater Chicago area later this afternoon, but it won't be a break in the humidity we'll need. Some of you may want to give your air conditioners a test run.
