Our weekly drought monitor was just updated yesterday, and we have seen some improvements across Kansas, particularly with the elimination of areas of Exceptional Drought.

In the coming days, the city is going to be hotter than the surrounding suburbs because of the "urban heat island effect", the weather service said on its Twitter page.

Anticipating highs up to 98 degrees, the National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch for Cook County between Saturday morning and Monday evening. We stay dry from Friday and lasting through Sunday, with rain chances looking to increase early next week as we tap into gulf moisture and the upper level ridge weakens slightly. There is a chance for some afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

Shower and storms chances look on the low side as a ridge will dominate our local weather with storms tracking well north of us. The storms could be strong/severe, with all aspects of severe weather possible.
