Excessive Heat Warning in effect for southern Illinois

Jeremy Bezanger

Triple-digit temperatures with even higher heat index values are expected

The daytime temperature may reach 100 degrees this week as excessive heat covers the region.

The National Weather Service office in Paducah says the last time we reached the 100-degree mark in Carbondale was back in July 2012. It's June 2016 for both Cape Girardeau and Paducah.

Forecasters say several record high temperatures are expected to be broken this week with excessive heat & humidity continuing through Wednesday.

They say take precautions if spending time outdoors over the next several days.
