Here Comes the Heat

 

Morning showers and thunderstorms gave us a reprieve yesterday from what would have otherwise been a very warm and humid day. Temperatures were held into the 70s for highs.

That won't be the case today though as the warm front responsible for those showers and storms surges off to the east putting us fully in the warm sector. Expect plenty of sunshine and highs soaring into the lower 90s. Combined with the humidity levels heat indexes will rise to near 100 by this afternoon.

Tonight clear skies will continue along with very warm and muggy conditions. Overnight lows in the lower 70s are likely.

We have a brief chance of showers and thunderstorms very early Saturday morning as a storm complex to the north of the area tries to dive southward. This may impact locations here before dawn Saturday. Any leftover boundaries from the morning storms may fuel more scattered convection later in the day but another warm and humid afternoon looks likely with highs again in the 90s.

Sunday will be a bit cooler but still warm with highs in the 80s.

Next week is looking quite active with several chances for showers and storms and well above normal temperatures continuing. We'll clarify any severe weather threats as we get closer to the beginning of next week. Until then have a great weekend!
