A humid Monday morning started off with temperatures in the 70s. The high is expected to reach about 96 degrees, though the heat index will make it feel more like 105.

Because of the forecast, a Heat Advisory is in effect from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. for St. Louis, St. Charles, Madison and St. Clair counties. The city of St. Louis is also under the advisory.
