Temperatures have been slowly rising into the lower 90s the last couple of days, and will eclipse the mid 90s mark tomorrow as high pressure brings in warmer air from our west. Couple the heat with the humidity we have been feeling over the last few days, and our heat index will be between 100-105 for Wednesday and Thursday. If you are going to be outside for extended periods of time, you will want to take safety precautions like drinking plenty of fluids, taking frequent breaks, and wearing light and loose fitting clothing.
Relief may come a bit Thursday evening as a weak cold front drops through the area. This front looks to touch off showers and storms, some of which could become strong to severe with damaging winds and hail. These storms look to arrive after sunset Thursday and exit Friday morning.
Once this front passes, high pressure reasserts control for a warm and dry weekend with highs remaining in the mid 90s. We could see another shot at rain on Monday with another weak cold front.
