    Heat and humidity will continue to build into Monday around Chicago.

    AccuWeather real feel temperatures will approach 100 F for several hours on Monday.

    In fact, Monday will be the city's first 90-degree day in more than a month. The last 90-degree reading came on July 22. Monday will also bring the return of afternoon thunderstorms.

    Overnight lows will remain in the low 70s through Tuesday.

    The humidity, along with the chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected to last through midweek, although temperatures are expected to drop on Wednesday, with highs near 80.

    Much cooler air will follow Thursday and Friday.

    Due to the threat for storms, the three-game series between the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians at U.S. Cellular Field could see weather delays.
