The extreme heat and humidity will continue for another couple days. There are currently Heat Advisories in effect for most of our area.
Today was the hottest day of the year so far with a high of 92°, and we may be even hotter-- and just as humid-- for the day on Wednesday.
Tomorrow will be a scorcher with highs of 93° and a heat index near 100 degrees. Again there is a chance for a few thunderstorms in the afternoon.
This heat can cause problems if you are out in it for a long period of time. Sunstroke, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible so take the proper precautions; drink plenty of water, dress in loose-fitting light-colored clothing, and seek out air conditioned places.
On Thursday a cold front sags into the state which could touch off thunderstorms; some of these storms may be strong or severe with damaging wind. Until that front pushes through we'll continue to swelter in the summer heat with a high again in the low 90s and a heat index around 100° yet again.
It'll still be warm and very humid on Friday with highs near 88 and a chance for thunderstorms.
Much cooler and more comfortable air moves in for the weekend.
