Even hotter and muggier weather on tap for the second half of the weekend. We are expecting plenty of sunshine with high temperatures in the low-to-mid 90s and heat index values between 100 and 105 in the afternoon.

Air pollution will also be an issue for folks with pre-existing health problems, like asthma. We are under a code orange for ground-level ozone.

Don’t expect any relief on Monday. In fact, it looks like it’ll be even hotter and more humid for the start of the work week.

Temperatures will moderate a bit for Tuesday and the 4th of July on Wednesday. But it will still be miserably muggy, with a feels-like temperature near 100 each afternoon.

Right now, it looks like any rain will hold off until Thursday.
