Chicago is having its hottest summer since 2012 and has already seen nine days with 90 degrees or higher.
Seven states are under heat advisory Thursday, from Minnesota down to Louisiana, where high temperatures combined with high humidity make it feel like it’s over 100 degrees. In some spots there, it could feel like it’s 111 degrees.
The heat will not be limited to the central U.S. this holiday weekend when temperatures will reach the 90’s and 100’s from California to New Jersey. The Fourth of July weekend is shaping up to be hazy and hot across much of the U.S.
