First Alert: Heat, humidity expected Monday

First Alert 10pm weather 8/9

(KFVS) - Heat and humidity are expected to surge on Monday, with more stormy weather ahead.

Isolated thunderstorms Sunday evening fizzled after sunset, leading to a mostly quiet but very muggy night.

Storm chances look to be a touch lower on Monday, although an isolated storm still looks possible, especially in southeast Illinois.

The bigger story for Monday looks to be heat and humidity.

Actual highs Monday afternoon will be in the low to mid-90s, with dew points in the mid to upper 70s. This makes it one of the most humid days of the summer, thus far. Heat indices will be in the 105 to 110 range by mid-afternoon. Official heat advisories are in effect.

Beyond Monday, the pattern becomes more stormy again, with gradually moderating high temperatures. Strong storms and heavy downpours appear possible Tuesday and Wednesday.

By the second half of the week we should be a tiny bit drier and cooler with temps closer to average for this time of year.
