EVENING: Humid. Hi 90.
TONIGHT: Clearing Skies, Muggy. Lo 74.
FRIDAY: Hot & Humid, Heat Index Near 110. Hi 96.
Very humid conditions continue overnight with temperatures starting in the mid 70s Friday morning. This will set the stage for the hottest stretch of the year so far.
Friday begins the 3 day stretch of extreme heat and humidity. Afternoon highs will reach the mid-90s, with very high humidity. This will produce a heat index of 105 to 110 degrees each afternoon through Sunday! Please use caution if you are planning any strenuous outdoor activities over the weekend. Looking ahead, the heat will finally break early next week thanks to a cold frontal passage on Monday. T-storms are likely both Sunday and Monday afternoon ahead of the front. Cooler and less humid air looks to arrive by Tuesday and continuing through the middle of next week.
