First Alert Forecast: Summer-like heat to continue through the weekend

Temperatures hit this mid 90s once again this afternoon under mostly sunny skies... This is a trend that will carry us through the rest of the weekend. Expect dry conditions for any evening plans tonight as temperatures slowly drop back into the low 70s. We'll quickly rebound back into the mid 90s by Sunday afternoon, with plenty of sunshine on tap for outdoor plans.

We’ll be close to breaking records by the start of the upcoming work week as temperatures reach the upper 90s for several days in a row. No substantial relief is in sight until the extended forecast. We’ll also be dry throughout this time frame, which will only escalate already worsening drought conditions.
