Maddie’s First Warning Forecast:

Excessive Heat Warning in effect Friday 11 AM – Saturday 8 PM for all of Southeastern Virginia including the Tidewater area and Northeast North Carolina. Hazard: Dangerous heat indices.

Friday will feature a mix of sun and clouds through the morning with a few showers and storms in the afternoon and evening. It’ll be hot again with highs in the mid 90s and heat index values 105° to 110°.

It’s going to get even hotter over the weekend. We will warm to the upper 90s both Saturday and Sunday with afternoon heat index values near 110. A stray shower/storm is possible but most of the weekend will be dry.

Monday will still be hot and humid but a break from the heat and humidity will move in on Tuesday thanks to a strong cold front. The front will also increase rain chances for the middle of the week but the much needed break from the heat will be much appreciated.

Friday: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms. Highs in the mid 90s. Winds: SW 5-10

Friday Night: Mostly Clear. Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10
