Temperatures will continue to climb on Wednesday. Expect highs to 96 degrees with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits once again. A 30 percent chance for an afternoon shower or storm. Not going to be a washout. Just keep an eye on the sky.

The First Warning Storm Team is declaring Friday, Saturday and Sunday as First Warning Action Days. This means we’re going to be dealing with extreme heat and humidity. High temperatures will climb to the mid an upper 90s with heat index values around 110 degrees.

The heat will stick around on Sunday and Monday. A little bit of a cool down on tap for Tuesday. Temperatures will warm to the upper 80s, which is normal for this time of year.
