First Warning Forecast:
Things are heating up here at home and off the coast.

Many of us hit the 90° mark today and it could be even steamier on Sunday.

Meanwhile, our first named storm is now churning in the Atlantic more than a week before the official start of a hurricane season.

Sub tropical storm Ana is bringing dangerous rip currents to our area beaches right now. But the storm is expected to move away over the next few days.

Back here at home, you will notice an increase in humidity on Sunday. Under partly cloudy skies, most of us will climb into the lower 90s with heat index values near 95°.

A cold front arrives on Monday, bringing a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms and a big drop in temperatures. Expect highs only in the mid 70s.

But temperatures will surge once again by mid week. Wednesday will be the hottest feeling day we have had since last summer. Some of us could have heat index values near 100°.

A major pattern shift begins late next week, with a chance for much-needed showers and thunderstorms Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned.
