Brace yourselves for warmer weather throughout this week: A late-summer heat wave that began Sunday in the Fox Valley will continue past the Labor Day weekend, according to AccuWeather, which predicts  temperatures in the lower 90s and into the upper 80s through at least Sept. 5.

Of course AccuWeather notes that moderate humidity will push up the heat index, meaning that  temperatures in the lower 90s will feel 4 or 5 degrees warmer during the daytime hours today, and that Tuesday’s forecast of 93 actually could feel more like 100 degrees.

AccuWeather says expect warm, humid conditions beneath sunny skies throughout the week, broken only by the possibility of a strong, morning thunderstorm on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013.

Expect overnight lows in the 70s early this week but dropping into the mid- to upper 60s as the weekend approaches, AccuWeather predicts.

By the way, the average temperatures for this time of years are in the lower 80s during the day and the lower 60s at night, according to AccuWeather.

The best strategy during the early part of the week especially: Stay indoors during the daytime hours, although evenings ought to be pleasant for Cruise Nite on Tuesday, and STC Live! on Wednesday and Friday.

That said, here are some of the options available to St. Charles residents in the week ahead:
