Alleluia. The extreme heat in Chicago may be over.

Accuweather reports that the norther tier of states, including the Great Lake region could be in for some relief from the infernal hot days.

"The extreme heat we saw... We're not going to see those extremes anymore," Margusity said. "We will still have hot days, but those are going to be few and far between from here on out."
The AccuWeather.com Long-Range Forecasting Team has also been calling for this shifting of the "heat bubble" during the month of August and overall cooler temperatures (compared to July) across the northern tier of the country.

"The third week of August may end up being the coolest week of the month for the Great Lakes and Northeast," said AccuWeather.com Long-Range Forecaster Jack Boston.
