Wednesday Night: Hot and above-average temperatures

Weather

Hotter days are coming this weekend.

Tonight: Temperatures will be fairly mild with lows in the mid 70s, but it will be a little muggy. Skies will be partly cloudy, and winds will be southwesterly at 5-10 mph. Low near 75.

Tomorrow: We’re in for another hot day tomorrow. Highs will rise into the low to mid 90s, and heat indices will reach the triple digits. Dew point temperatures will be in the mid 70s, so it will be very humid. We;ll stay mainly dry with a just a slight chance of an isolated shower. Winds will be light. High near 93.

Extended: Friday will provide a hot start to the weekend. Highs will rise into the low to mid 90s once again, and feels-like temperatures will leap into the 100s. Saturday and Sunday will be even worse with highs in the mid 90s and heat indices possibly in the 110s. There is a good chance that a heat advisory will be issued. Make sure to practice heat safety by staying hydrated, wearing light-colored clothing and using sunscreen. The upcoming workweek will be hot, but by Wednesday, temperatures will be in the lower 90s and a little closer to average.
