First Warning Forecast: Sweltering heat on tap for the weekend

We’re cranking up the heat for the weekend. Clear to partly cloudy skies today with highs in the low 90s. It will feel like the upper 90s to triple digits though, once we factor in the humidity.

Another hot one on Sunday. It will be very similar to Saturday with highs in the low 90s. We only have a 5 percent chance for a pop-up shower or storm since we will be dealing with lots of heat and humidity.

Expect dry conditions to start the work week with highs near 90 under clear to partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will start trending closer to normal for the remainder of the week, which means highs mainly in the upper 80s. Tuesday is looking dry with highs in the upper 80s.

Fourth of July is looking mostly dry. We are keeping a slight 20 percent chance for a pop-up shower and storm. We’ll keep an eye on it. A little bit better of a chance on Thursday and Friday.
