Sunday Night: The heat continues

Weather

Practice heat safety as we face super hot days.

Tonight: Expect a warm and muggy night. Temperatures will fall into the upper 70s, which is a little above average, but it will feel much warmer. Heat indices overnight will be in the upper 80s for most of the night. Skies will be mostly clear and winds will be southwesterly at 5-10 mph. Low near 78.

Tomorrow: The workweek will start on a hot note with highs in the mid 90s once again. A Heat Advisory will be in place from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m. due to the likelihood of heat indices between 108°F and 112°F. Make sure to practice heat safety. Skies will be partly cloudy, and there is a chance for a few afternoon storms, some of which could be strong. We are under a marginal risk for those storms with the main threats being gusty winds, hail and heavy rain. These storms will be isolated, and it will not create a washout. Winds will be westerly at 5-10 mph. High near 95.

Extended: Much of the week will feature warmer-than-average temperatures with highs in the mid 90s. The week will be mostly dry, but there is an isolated chance of storms everyday mainly in the afternoon. The best chance for showers will be on Thursday, which is when we could see scattered showers in the picture. It still, however, will be a hot day with high heat indices. Be sure to practice heat safety throughout the entire week.
