High pressure is here and strengthening. We've seen warm weather already but it will continue warm through the next few days and into the weekend. Moist air in place will make for very muggy conditions and make spending time outdoors feel more uncomfortable. Heat indices will be running in the mid and upper 90s for the next few days.

For the rest of tonight, the same system that brought severe weather to the Midwest will bring us rain chances tonight and maybe a rumble of thunder as well but nothing severe. Temperatures will drop to around 70 degrees for the overnight low.

Tomorrow temperatures are expected to reach 90 by the afternoon hours. A small chance of an afternoon shower is possible. Expect heat index’s to reach back into the mid 90’s with the amount of moisture we have in place.

Over the next seven days we will be tracking a cold front moving into the south bringing an increased rain chance to the area as well for Tuesday. Early indications show up to an inch of rain is possible as well. Temperatures will drop slightly for Tuesday and Wednesday once the front comes through. The Steve Hull memorial Golf Tournament is looking to be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the upper 80’s.

Please use caution when outdoors, this includes sun block and staying well hydrated in the heat.
