We kind of thought summer was cancelled in Rockford. Praise the weather gods, the heat is finally showing up this weekend.

2019 has been a weird year. And we can officially say that now that we're halfway through.

One of the weirdest parts of the year, the weather!

From ice storms to insane amounts of rain to thirty degree mornings in June, it's been awfully well, awful.

But according to our Rockford weather friends, summer is officially hitting the Stateline this week.

A STRETCH IN THE 80S.

This is necessary. I need a tan, and we all need to test our air.
