Dangerous Heat For Most Of Illinois To Start The Week 

(Lincoln, IL)  —  This is not the week to leave your pets in the car alone. The National Weather Service is warning of dangerously high heat and humidity for most of the state today. Forecasters say folks from St. Louis to Chicago and Danville to the Quad Cities can expect temperatures in the 90s, and a heat index pushing 100 degrees. Their advice is to drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks if you have to work outside, and never leave a dog or cat in a hot car.
