Tuesday Morning: Hot and “somewhat” dry

News

Today: Mostly sunny skies with light winds out of the northeast. Highs near 95° and feel-like temperatures close to 100°.

Tonight: Mostly clear skies with calm winds. Lows near 75°.

Extended: Our heat will steadily build over the next few days with highs climbing into the upper 90’s by Wednesday. Temperatures will sit between 97° and 99° Thursday through Saturday with feel-like temperatures between 107°-110° so we’ll have to watch for a heat advisory those days. With that in mind heat safety is a must!

Heat Safety Tips:

  1. Stay Hydrated
  2. Take breaks in the shade
  3. Look before you lock
  4. Check on the elderly
  5. Limit outdoor activities
  6. Know how to spot signs for heat related illnesses

Starting the beginning of next week our temperatures will fall back down to our season average in the low 90’s and rain chances will creep back into our forecast.
