Even though we haven't officially reached 90° yet this year (as of Tuesday AM), we've had our share of heat & humidity, with more on the way as we round out the week. Highs will return to the upper 80s & lower 90s Thursday through Saturday, but with higher humidity levels during this stretch, it will feel even hotter. The heat index values, the summer feels like temperatures, will soar to the 100° mark or better, especially Thursday & Friday. That's why an excessive heat watch will go into affect Thursday through Saturday. The combination of heat and humidity like we will see during this stretch is dangerous and even life-threatening. Stay cool & safe! Stay hydrated, limit your outside time if you can. If you can't take frequent breaks in the AC or shade. Bring your furry friends inside, and never leave a child or pet unattended in a vehicle!
