The day began with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms as a disturbance along the incoming hot and humid air mass.  Since then, skies have cleared allowing for sunshine to help us see highs in the mid to upper 80s.  Heat indices this afternoon were well into the 90s.


The weak warm front that lifted northeast into the area yesterday has slowed and become nearly stationary over the area. The stalled boundary will bring a continued chance of showers and thunderstorms the next couple of days. We do anticipate plenty of dry time through Friday and into the weekend and no severe threat with any storms that do develop.

The big weather story over the weekend and into early next week will be the dangerous levels of heat and humidity.  Afternoon heat indices are expected to peak from 100 to 107-degrees beginning Friday and continuing through at least Monday.

A Heat Advisory has been issued during the period to include at least some of the counties within the WICD NewsChannel 15 viewing area.  The combination of heat and humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat related stress and illness.  Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. 

Temperatures continue to warm into the weekend, rising into the lower to middle 90s.
