Feeling the heat and humidity again….Get ready! We are in for quite a toasty week with triple digit heat index values.

As we move through our Wednesday afternoon, high temperatures will climb into the lower 90s. Because of the humidity, it will feel like the upper 90s into the triple digits. Take your precautions. We’ll see a nice mix of sun and clouds. An isolated shower or storm is possible. Later this evening, we’ll watch out for a stray shower or storm. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies and areas of patchy fog late. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

Some of us will wake up to patchy fog on Thursday. Otherwise, as we go through the day, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds. An isolated shower or storm is possible. High temperatures will rise into the lower 90s. Again, it will feel much hotter because of the humidity.

The heat and humidity will continue to be a big story over the next several days. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s by Friday into the weekend. Heat index values will be in the triple digits. By Monday and Tuesday, our temperatures will fall into the upper 80s and lower 90s with a chance of rain and storms.

Today: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Showers/Storms (20%). Highs near 90. Winds: S/SE 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Areas of Patchy Fog. Lows in the mid to upper 70s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Patchy AM Fog. Partly Cloudy. Isolated Showers/Storms (20%). Highs near 90. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
