Given the rain-cooled air, record heat is unlikely today, but with high humidity, heat index values are expected to approach the mid to upper 90’s later this afternoon as high temperatures approach 90.
Record heat is looking more likely Wednesday with highs in the mid-90s along with heat index values from 100 to 105.
Weekday Storm Risk
Afternoon and evening storms are possible Wednesday and Thursday afternoon and evening. Given the extreme heat, any storms that do develop could be strong to severe, generally an isolated severe storm risk.
A cold front arrives Friday which will deliver some well-needed relief just in time for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday are both looking very nice with seasonal temperatures in the mid-80s along with cooler lows in the 50s.
