FORECAST DISCUSSION

Heat Advisory through 8pm...

Wednesday & Thursday
The heat index will again run above 105º with another heat advisory on Wednesday. Highs will stay in the mid 90s with isolated storms possible Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Severe weather is not likely, however with the extreme heat any storms may strengthen quickly, so we can't completely rule out a couple of severe thunderstorms. Frequent cloud to ground lightning is likely in any storm during a heat wave.

Friday, Saturday & Sunday
The hot weather will continue through Friday and Saturday, with generally rain-free conditions. While temps will stay in the mid to upper 90s Friday, temps will slowly trend towards the low 90s by Sunday. Slightly lower humidity levels will help keep the heat index below 105 on Saturday and Sunday. Rain chances will pick up a bit Sunday into Monday as a front nears the area.
