With heat indexes (what the temperature feels like) pushing into the 110s today, it is going to be dangerous to be outside for any extended length of time. If you are outside for an extended amount of time, make sure you protect yourself with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and plenty of water. Now on to the forecast. A partly sunny day expected with measured highs expected to reach the mid to upper 90s even though it will feel hotter. With this heat will always come a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the PM, just like yesterday, the heat will destabilize the atmosphere and allow convection. Low temperatures this evening in the low to mid 70s.

Tomorrow will continue having heat indexes into the 100s, however the excessive heat warning and heat advisories will end tonight at 8PM. Highs tomorrow expected to be in the lower 90s with chances of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon once again. When the temperatures drop for tomorrow evening’s low of 72 degrees, they will stay down. Comparatively speaking.

We finally get a break from the excessive heat Monday and throughout the work week, we will stay out of the 90s. Chances of showers and thunderstorms on Monday with highs in the low 80s. Lows Monday in the low 60s. Shower chances linger Tuesday morning with temperatures in the upper 70s, lower 80s. Sunny skies throughout the rest of the week with temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s for highs.
