Today looks to be the last day of this mini "heat wave". Temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 90s for our highs with a heat index even hotter. The heat index, like a wind chill in winter, causes our bodies to react to the temperature much more quickly so dehydration and heat exhaustion occur more quickly. Make sure you stay well hydrated today. A cold front is expected to move through today bringing an increased chance of showers and storms, only 10 percent chances, as well as extra cloud cover. These two factors will make today slightly cooler than yesterday by about 1-2 degrees.

Tomorrow temperatures will drop into the lower 90s helping to set us up for a great fourth of July weekend locally. Else where, mainly on the east coast they will be dealing with our first tropical storm of the season, Tropical Storm Arthur. It is expect to re-curve out to sea but will skim along the coast as it goes.

As we head into a new work week, rain chances remain around 10 percent and temperatures climb back into the mid 90s.
