Our temperatures are climbing as we wrap up the work week and kick off the weekend! Highs today will top out in the low-mid 90s and feels-like temperatures look to exceed 106° across most of the area... A Heat Advisory is in place for this reason until the early evening hours. Be sure to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks from the outdoors today.
Heat and humidity will continue to climb into the weekend and ALERT DAYS are in place. Feels like temperatures could reach, if not exceed, 110° throughout the weekend. We're also watching the potential for a couple of clusters of storms that could move in out of the N/NW and bring us gusty winds & heavy rain. Be sure to keep the First Alert Wx App handy so you can check radar & temps before heading out to those outdoor plans!
The ridge will only continue to build in as we kick off the upcoming work week, which will keep the heat and humidity around through the extended forecast.
