outdoors, or reschedule strenuous activity for a cooler time of
day.

...A PERIOD OF DANGEROUS HEAT EXPECTED ACROSS NORTHERN ILLINOIS
AND NORTHWEST INDIANA...
.A multiple day episode of dangerous heat is expected later this
week centered on Friday into the start of the weekend. This heat
will expand into the area Thursday afternoon and persist through
Friday and into Saturday. There is a potential for showers and
thunderstorms Thursday morning that may keep Thursday cooler than
forecast, but confidence is increasing in dangerous heat arriving
by Friday. Additionally, there will be little relief from the heat
overnight Thursday and Friday. The urban heat island core of
Chicago is most susceptible to night time temperatures that do not
cool significantly, limiting the amount of relief that can occur
at night.

with prolonged exposure. Those without air conditioning,
elderly, small children, and pets are especially susceptible.
Plan ahead. Have a cool place to shelter from the heat. Avoid
outdoor activity, especially strenuous ones, during the peak
heating times of the day.

Minnesota - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Dodge; Fillmore; Houston; Mower; Olmsted; Wabasha; Winona

...Thunderstorms With Heavy Rain Possible Wednesday Night...
Another round of thunderstorms will be possible across much of the
area Wednesday night. The stronger storms will have the potential
to produce heavy rain and there will also be the possibility of
storms repeatedly moving over the same locations. This could cause
some flooding to develop.
The areas that will be most susceptible to flooding will be across
southeast Minnesota into western and north-central Wisconsin. The
ground is already saturated in some places from recent rains and
additional heavy rains could lead to flooding. If storms repeat
over the same areas, flash flooding will become a concern and a
flash flood watch may be needed for parts of the area.
Monitor later forecasts and statements and now is the time to
prepare and know what to do if heavy rain and flooding develops.

prepare and know what to do if heavy rain and flooding develops.
