Friday’s First Warning Forecast: More sunshine, heat, and humidity

Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

A sunny but hot weekend… Highs will reach the upper 80s to near 90 this afternoon, slightly cooler than yesterday but still above normal. With the humidity it will feel more like the mid 90s this afternoon. Expect mostly sunny skies today with a few extra clouds in the mix at times. A stray “pop-up” shower/storm is possible but most areas will stay dry.

 

More heat, humidity, and sunshine this weekend.  Highs will return to near 90 on Saturday with afternoon heat index values in the upper 90s. Highs will warm into the low to mid 90s on Sunday with afternoon heat index values near 105. With all of the heat and humidity a stray “pop-up” shower/storm is possible but most areas will stay dry.

 

Highs will remain in the low 90s early next week with afternoon heat index values in the upper 90s and low triple digits. Looking ahead to the Fourth of July, we will see highs in the upper 80s with partly cloudy skies and an isolated shower/storm possible.

Tonight: Mainly Clear. Lows in the low to mid 70s. Winds: E/S 5-10
