Incumbent Democratic Illinois Senator Richard Durbin has been declared winner in the Illinois Senate race.

Durbin currently holds 56% of votes against Republican candidate Mark Curran's 40%.

Sen. Dubin's defeat of Curran would usher in his 5th term as Illinois' senator.

Since 2005, Durbin has served as the Senate Democratic Whip, the second-highest ranking position in Democratic leadership in the U.S. Senate.

He was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
