Not our area, but Denver hit 105 today.

That tied the all time record high, which has also been achieved on 6/26/12, 6/25/12, 7/20/05 and 8/8/1878.

wonder if indy will upgrade to warning. Always the conservative office I swear. 110 peak indexes or higher and advisory

I think IND has higher criteria for a warning. Not entirely sure though

That's amazing, I was just there but it was 96ºF. If it got that hot so far, imagine if the 603 dm isotach right over DEN verified that the GFS showed the other day.

85/57 today but 88 is forecasted for both tomorrow and Saturday, with increasing humidity.  85 felt really warm tho.  Could use some rain again, so the heat and humidity is welcome. Bugs did end up getting really bad... straight deet is essential to being outside right now.

The heat and humidity have just moved in today as the dome shifts NE.

Looking at one of the most pronounced heat waves in at least 3-4 summers that I can remember. Some models were pushing nation-wide record humidex values as far north as Ottawa (over 110F!) for Sunday.

Interesting heat/dry burst out in northwest NE right now.  At Gordon they were at 87/73 at 2315z, and now they have jumped up to 92, and the dew has dropped to 38 with 44mph wind gust.  A storm crapped the bed right as it was moving towards Gordon, so it must have created the heat burst.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville, IL
816 PM CDT Thu Jun 28 2018

.UPDATE...
816 PM CDT

No big changes planned to going forecast. Did bump up cloud cover
tonight, especially first half of the night as blow off cloudiness
to the north of the impressive MCS over southern IL provides a
high overcast over the area. After midnight expect a gradual
decrease in this cloudiness with a good deal of sunshine expected
Friday.

A couple of CAMs (convective allowing models) would suggest
convection over MN tonight will peel southeast into the
instability axis, threatening mainly our northeastern CWA with
outflow or perhaps even convection Friday morning. While this
potential would appear remote, don`t have any strong new evidence
to eliminate this possibility, so not planning to upgrade the
excessive heat watch for our northeast CWA this shift.

Did nudge dewpoints up a bit in the grids tomorrow as forecast
soundings continue to depict unusually low inversion heights for
the afternoon this time of year tomorrow, near or even just below
900mb. The very low inversion heights will likely trap corn fed
evapotranspiration dewpoints near the surface and prevent them
from mixing out, similar to the infamous 1995 and 1999 heat
waves. Given the recent record rainfall, suspect that 80F+
dewpoints outside of the Chicago urban corridor will be fairly
common tomorrow afternoon. Big question is how hot temperatures
will get. Unlike 1995 and 1999, very recent heavy rainfall has
left areas lush green and combined with the very high moisture
content could hold temps more in the low to mid 90s vs mid to
upper 90s, but the difference will be more academic 80F+ dewpoints
send heat indices to 105F to 115F with some area potentially even
making a run at 120F tomorrow afternoon if dewpoints can get up
into the 82-84F range, which is well within the realm of
possibilities.

Updated grids/derived text forecasts have already been sent.

The MCS rolling by to the south this afternoon threw a thick canopy of clouds over us, keeping the temp down.  I got all the yard work done so I won't have to go out tomorrow.  DVN is calling for 97.  We'll see.  They were too high with highs during the last heat wave.

I don't like hearing this :(

Most recent guidance coming in is favoring less mixing for tomorrow around here, and slightly cooler UA temps than previously shown.

 The result is lower high temps, but higher DP’s.

Correct, ILX/IND and others have a 110F criteria, compared to 105F for LOT/IWX.

 3km nam shows 110-115 heat index values across much of the region, looks to be pretty darn awful out there tomorrow. With most 00z guidance losing any convection tomorrow, would expect LOT to upgrade remaining counties to a warning

Agreed

As bad as it will be during the day... imo, pockets of Chicago may have heat indices not dropping below the upper 80s/near 90 most of tomorrow night as well as Saturday night.  Not good for people without air conditioning.

HRRR is gradually coming in warmer for tomorrow now. Even has a speck near 100 downtown.

Mixing depth will definitely be key and will be interesting to see how temps progress through the day.

Maybe late this week?  :guitar:  Looking at the 12z GFS rolling in, it has a lot of 82-84 degree dews early Friday evening.
For some of our older adults here, if it seems like it's more muggy with more extreme muggy airmasses compared to decades ago, you'd be correct.  That is an actual trend backed up by observations... maybe not everywhere (can't recall all the details of the study I read) but definitely in the areas with significant corn crop.
I live in the middle of that significant corn crop. Surrounded by thousands of acres of corn.

Oh, and no central A/C either. Just window units in the bedrooms.

I am in the same boat as you. Surrounded by corn. No AC crew checking in!

ORD at 84 as of 10AM....on track for mid-90’s.

Yeah, 87 now at ORD which looks to be a couple degrees ahead of the latest HRRR.
