FORECAST DISCUSSION

Blazing heat sticking around through Saturday...

Thursday
The heat index will again run above 105º with another heat advisory on Thursday afternoon/evening. Highs will stay in the mid 90s with isolated storms possible 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 stray severe thunderstorm. Any storm which forms during a heat wave can produce frequent lightning.

Friday, Saturday & Sunday
The hot weather will continue through Friday and Saturday, with generally dry 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 at or below 105 on Saturday and Sunday. Rain chances will pick up a bit Sunday into Monday as a front nears the area.
