"Heat Advisory" Through Friday Evening

3PM UPDATE: As of 3pm the heat index has soared to 102° in the Quad cities!  The actual temperature is 94°, the hottest day we've had since last August 7th when it was 97°!

Much of the Mississippi and Illinois Valleys are under a "Heat Advisory" through Friday evening as temperatures climb into the low-to-mid-90s.  Once you factor that heat with high humidity, it's going to feel like 100°-105° Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons.

While a cold front passing through the area might bring some much-needed shower activity Friday night and cooler temperatures (82°-85°) for the weekend, more heat and humidity will build next week.

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is forecasting above average temperatures through the end of July.

So far, this July, we've only picked up 0.73" of rain, which is 1.80" below average.  It could be worse.  At this point in July last year, we had only picked up 0.21" of rain in the Quad Cities.
