Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

It looks like our vacation from the extreme heat is over. Expect high temperatures in the 90s over at least the next seven days. And with the humidity it will feel more like the triple digits on most days.

A broad area of high pressure will move in overnight, nudging the front that’s bringing our stormy weather away.

With more sunshine and dry weather, temperatures will soar.

We will climb into the low 90s on Wednesday, mid 90s on Thursday, and upper 90s by Friday. And on Friday it could feel like 110° at some point.

We could see a few storms this weekend, but it won’t make a dent in the extreme heat, with highs in the mid-to-upper 90s.
