Saturday Evening: Summer heat takes control through the weekend

Weather

Tonight: Mostly clear skies with winds out if the west at 5 mph. Lows near 76°.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny skies with a slight chance for a pop-up shower during the afternoon. Highs near 98° with feel-like temperatures close to 107°.

Extended: With feel-like temperatures close to 107° tomorrow, we’ll sit close to heat advisory criteria. With that in mind it’s important to remember your heat safety tips. Starting Monday our rain chances will increase slightly with highs in the upper 90’s and feel-like temperatures in the triple digits. The following days will be similar before rain chances become more widespread by next weekend.

Tropics Update: The National Hurricane Center has their eye on a trough of low pressure currently set up over parts of western Kentucky, Tennessee and northern Mississippi. For more information on the tropics click here.
