Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:

Welcome to our hottest week of the year! It’s possible we could hit 100° this week. And it’s likely several days will feel like 110° when you factor in the humidity!

A dying cold front could bring a little relief late Monday evening, with a few spotty storms. But that front will fizzle out and temperatures will actually rise over the next few days.

Expect high temperatures on Tuesday in the low-to-mid 90s with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits.

A few cooling storms could pop up in the late afternoon and evening.

Wednesday brings higher temperatures and lower rain chances.

Expect plenty of sunshine with high temperatures in the mid 90s and heat index values north of 105°!

Thursday will be one of our hottest days, with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s and feels-like temperatures near 110°.

Another week cold front could spark a few cooling storms Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening.

Behind that cold front temperatures only drop a few degrees. On Friday we expect highs back in the low-to-mid 90s.

But temperatures and humidity levels come roaring back on Saturday.

That’s when we could hit the triple digits for the first time in two years. Heat index values on Saturday will likely reach 110°.

The heat will be a little less intense on Sunday and Monday, but we will continue to top out in the low-to-mid 90s.
