Friday Night: More excessive heat alerts on Saturday; Some relief next week

Weather

Tonight: Mostly dry and warm tonight. Lows in the mid and upper 70s.

Heat Advisory is in effect from 9 AM to 7 PM Saturday. Also, some are under an Excessive Heat Warning. High heat and humidity could put major stress on our bodies and this could quickly lead to heat-related illnesses. Heat index values are expected to be around 108°F to 113°F+. Limit your time outdoors and stay cool and hydrated. Please do not forget about your pets!

Additionally, the high heat, humidity, light winds, Saharan dust, and wildfire smoke from southern Canada will lead to Air Quality Index (AQI) levels in the moderate category Saturday and Sunday. If you have asthma or any respiratory illnesses, limit your time outdoors as much as you can.

Weekend: Scattered showers and storms will be around. Highs will be in the mid and upper 90s, but it will feel closer to 110°. Heat alerts will likely be in effect on Sunday, as well.

Monday & Tuesday: Incoming cold front will lead to higher rain coverage, which would keep our temperatures down a couple of degrees. We will have monitor the potential for heavy rain. 

Wednesday-Friday: If the cold front passes our area, this would lead to lower rain chances and less humidity. The slightly drier air wouldn’t last too long because the front will retreat back to the north by late week, which means Gulf moisture will get pulled to the north, as well. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Overnight temperatures will be cooler in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
