The First Warning storm team is continuing to track oppressive conditions through your weekend.

Dewpoints in the mid to upper 70s this afternoon and evening, making it feel downright miserable to be outside. Highs today in the lower 90s with a mixture of sun and clouds with a chance for an isolated shower or storm. Lows tonight in the mid to upper 70s, making for a warm and humid night. Could see some patchy fog late tonight into your morning commute.

Highs Friday with soar into the mid 90s with heat index values near 105°. Mostly dry conditions with a mixture of sun and clouds. An isolated shower or storm is possible in the afternoon and evening.

If you’re not enjoying this heat, brace yourself, the weekend highs will be in the mid 90s with heat index values 105° to 110°! Be sure to take the proper precautions if you are to be out and about. Drink plenty of fluids! An isolated shower is possible through the weekend, better rain chances heading into next week with an approaching cold front. Some good news for next week, a day in the 80s.

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 (10%). Highs in the low to mid 90s. Winds: SSW 5-10 mph.
