Heat is the big weather story this week.
Heat will be the big weather story this week. We have had 18 days in the 90s this summer and we are forecasting a few more this week. Expect afternoon temperatures near 90 degrees Tuesday through Thursday this week. It will feel like 95 degrees or hotter too. A stray shower or storm will be possible on Wednesday and Thursday, with a slight better chance for showers and storms on Friday.
Take precautions from the heat and higher humidity this week. It has been several weeks since we have had a 90 degree day. In fact, this month we have started with 6 of 9 days in the 70s.
This mini heat wave will break this weekend. Highs will be in the lower 80s on Saturday and in the middle 80s on Sunday.
The longer range analysis has 90 degree heat returning early next week.
