There is an 'excessive heat warning' from noon on Sunday until 10pm on Monday.

Severe thunderstorms that could bring winds of up to 60 miles per hour are expected to start pushing through northeast IL and northwest IN during the late afternoon and continue into the night, the weather service said. By this afternoon highs will have reached into the lower 90s, but add on the humidity and heat index values will be well into the upper 90s and possibly even neat 100.

Heat index forecast for Sunday.

"Right now, there's still a couple clouds around", he said Sunday afternoon. Very humid air will make temperatures feel as high as 110 to 115 degrees during the daytime.

Heat index values are expected to be up to 107 due to temperatures in the upper 90s and dewpoints in the low 70s.

In order to stay safe we will need to ensure a few things: make sure you are hydrated with water and/or electrolyte replacement beverages.

Three babies dead, 100 missing in latest shipwreck off Libya
So far in 2018, there have already been 1,000 deaths of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean. The agreement also calls for humanitarian groups not to obstruct the Libyan coast guard.

An EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH remains in effect for Tolland and Windham County. Highs on the holiday will climb into the lower to mid-90s.

Heat indices that high can cause heat stroke and death for anyone outside too long. A few locations in northern Indiana and near the Indiana/Illinois state line may cross in to the lower 100°s.

Also be sure to check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, and check on animals to ensure they're not suffering from the heat.

Temperatures are expected to stay sultry next week, with temperatures in the high 80s. With winds that won't be that strong, it may cool down a bit near Lake Michigan as the day progresses.

There's also a little rain in the forecast, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms late Monday afternoon.

Heatwaves occur when there are three consecutive days with highs of 90 degrees or higher.
