CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – JULY 19: Residents cool off at 31st Street Beach as temperatures are forecast to head into the mid to high 90’s with a heat index nearing 115 degrees on July 19, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. The heat wave gripping the city is affecting nearly two-thirds of the United states where more than 195 million people will experience temperatures above 90 degrees over the next few days.

While the great WGN-TV Meteorologist Tom Skilling takes a well-deserved vacation, Anna chats with the delightful WGN weather producer Bill Snyder who talks about the glorious weather weekend in Chicago, the lake water temperature, a decline in lake levels, what we know about Tropical Storm Elsa, the 9-year anniversary since Chicago had a 100 degree day, and the likelihood we see some cooler weather as we head towards the weekend.
