Tracking the heat and humidity, along with more thunderstorms….Take it easy over the next few days! It will feel like the triple digits and we’re bracing for a few more showers and thunderstorms.

As we move through our Thursday, we’re expecting another hot, humid day with high temperatures in the low to mid 90s. But with the humidity, it will feel like the triple digits. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds as we go through the afternoon. A few scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely this afternoon as well. Any storms that develop could produce heavy rain and gusty winds. We’ll keep a close eye on the radar for you.

By Friday and Saturday, our temperatures will soar into the mid and upper 90s, with heat index values in the triple digits. This will likely be some of the hottest weather we’ve seen this year, especially Saturday, so take your precautions! A cold front will move through the area Saturday afternoon, which could produce a few showers and storms as it crosses. We’ll keep an eye on it. By Sunday, with the front to our south, highs will drop into the upper 80s into Monday.

Today: Sun and Cloud Mix. Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). High temperatures in the low and mid 90s. Winds: W/SW 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). Low temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
