Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be found across extreme eastern Lee County this morning before diminishing. Locally heavy rainfall is likely.
The rest of us remain dry today for the most part, though I can’t rule out an isolated storm later this afternoon. Otherwise expect partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures soaring to near 90 degrees. More humidity will push heat index values into the lower 90s.
This weekend the heat intensifies further and we could see the hottest Father’s Day in nearly ten years. Highs will be well into the 90s through Monday of next week with heat index values pushing 100 at times. Make sure and drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks in the shade, and wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing if you must be outdoors for extended periods of time. A Heat Advisory runs from 1pm Friday until 7pm Sunday.
