(Lincoln, IL)  —  Just about everyone in Illinois, outside of the Chicagoland area, is under either an Excessive Heat Warning or a Heat Advisory for another day. The National Weather Service is blanketing the state with warnings about temperatures that will be into the 90s today, and heat index readings that will top 100 degrees. Forecasts say air conditioning is a must today, as are frequent breaks if you’re working outside, and plenty of water.
