Friday Evening: Excessive heat extends into the weekend

Weather

Tonight: Expect a mild and steamy evening under clear skies. We remain under an Ozone Action Day until midnight. Lows near 74.

Tomorrow: Plan on more extreme heat tomorrow. Heat indices will reach 106° during the afternoon. Skies will stay mostly sunny. Rain chances will be minimal. Highs near 96.

Extended: We will continue with the “Dog Days” of summer. We really won’t see much in the way of change. Rain chances climb for early next week. Thunderstorms will be spotty throughout the afternoon hours. An individual storm has the potential to become strong to severe. Otherwise, daytime highs will sit in the low to mid 90s. Heat indices will remain in the upper 90s and lower 100s.
