The Chicago area is in for a rough start to the weekend, as waves of rain and excessive heat and humidity will roll into the area. 

According to the NBC 5 Storm Team, temperatures will rise to the high 80’s all weekend long, with a chance of thunderstorms throughout the weekend. High humidity will push heat indicies even higher than that, meaning that Chicago-area residents are in for a sweltering weekend. 

With the threat of rain looming, flash flood watches have been issued for large chunks of the area, including in Cook, Lake, De Kalb, Kane, Du Page, and La Salle Counties. Those watches will take effect at 4 p.m. on Friday afternoon and will continue through Saturday evening, according to the National Weather Service. 

Many of these areas have already been impacted by heavy rains in recent days, with Lake County being especially hard hit. 

For all the latest updates on weather conditions in the area, make sure to stay tuned to NBC 5 and download the NBC 5 Chicago app.
