First Alert Forecast: ALERT DAYS issued for the weekend
Searing Summer Heat Cranks Up This Weekend (Source: WLBT)

Scattered showers and storms will remain possible for our central and NE counties this afternoon and evening, but our SW counties should stay dry. High temperatures will begin their climb today, topping out near 90°!

Rain chances will remain in the forecast through the 7-day, especially this weekend as we could see clusters of storms pass through out of the NW, but we'll be much less active overall. Instead, our focus will be shifting to the heat and humidity...

ALERT DAYS have been issued for Saturday and Sunday as feels-like temps could exceed 110° and heat stress is a concern. Be careful to stay hydrated & take frequent breaks if you have outdoor plans this weekend! Our added heat and humidity will last through next week. 

First Alert Forecast: summer storms to summer sizzle
