Break in hot weather coming; broiling temperatures back Monday

We're getting a break from the hot weather. Temperatures should fall back into the mid-60's Wednesday night after a high in the middle nineties. A slice of northwestern Bureau County has a slight risk for severe weather Wednesday night. Golf-ball sized hail, winds well over 60 mph and one or two tornados are possible. The rest of Starved Rock Country is under a marginal risk.
