First Warning Forecast: More heat and humidity to end the work week

It is going to be a warm and muggy night with lows in the upper 70s, under partly cloudy skies.

The heat will stick around for the end of the work week. Temperatures on Friday will soar into the mid 90s with heat index values from 105 to 110. Expect more sunshine in the morning with increasing clouds in the afternoon. A cold front will approach from the northwest bringing the chance for showers and storms. The Storm Prediction Center has us in a level 2 for severe storms, so we will be keeping a close eye on radar Friday evening.

A little bit of relief behind the cold front for the weekend. Temperatures will dip into the upper 80s. Scattered showers and storms are possible for both days, but the pick of the weekend looks to be Sunday, when we will see more sunshine. Temperatures will warm back to the 90s next week.

 

 

Tonight: Partly cloudy and warm. Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.

Tomorrow: A mix of sun and clouds. Late-day showers and storms possible (40%). Highs in the mid 90s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Tomorrow night: Showers and storms (40%). Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 10-15, with gusts up to 25 mph.
