Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 94°
  • 74°

Like yesterday, we'll see a mix of sun and clouds through the day with only a few isolated showers or storms.  It's going to be hotter, and we'll see that trend continue through the next few days.  Highs will top out in the low to mid 90s today, but with the humidity factored in, it will feel more like the upper 90s.  The rain chance remains low today, and any storms would be winding down by the late afternoon or early evening.  We'll see a few clouds overnight, and it will be muggy.  Expect lows to stay in the 70s overnight.

It's even hotter for Thursday.  Highs will top out in the mid 90s with a heat index around 100.  We'll likely see the heat index top 100 Thursday through Monday.  This will be the hottest stretch of days we've seen this summer.  Actual highs this weekend should push into the upper 90s.  If you have any work to do outdoors, make sure you're staying hydrated.  Try to take breaks in the shade or air conditioning, and avoid prolonged time in direct sunlight.  If you start feeling light-headed, become disoriented, or stop sweating completely you need to get into the AC immediately.  Those are signs of dehydration and heat related illness; it may be necessary to seek medical attention.  The oppressive heat should begin to let up by the middle of next week.
