What We’re Tracking:
- Very hot and humid through the weekend
- Rain returns late Sunday
- Cooler to start next week
A HEAT ADVISORY is in effect until 8:00p.m. Saturday for the entire area.
A very warm and humid evening is expected with heat index values in the lower 90s through midnight and dewpoints in the middle 70s. A light breeze will be present out of the south with mostly clear skies. It’ll be a warm, but great night to get out and enjoy the start of the weekend!ADVERTISING
Overnight lows will only dip into the upper 70s to near 80° for the next couple of nights, providing little relief from the heat even then.
South winds become more breezy for Saturday, but that’s only going to warm us up further. Highs in the low 100s are expected with dewpoints in the low 70s, so it’ll feel more like 110° in the afternoon. Winds may gust up to 25 mph.
Hot temperatures continue through Sunday as we remain dry, but we’ll be watching for our next opportunity for rain to arrive late in the day. As of right now, it looks like the best chance for rain will be overnight into Monday morning. Highs in the afternoon may bring some much needed relief with temperatures in the middle 80s.
Looking further ahead into next week, after the brief cool down we’ll gradually start to warm back up into the mid-90s throughout the week as the heat keeps making a comeback!
Less than 50 days until fall… just saying.
