SUMMARY: Hot, humid, and occasionally stormy weather will hang around through the weekend. Highs will be in the 90s but heat indices may surpass 105 at times. Rain chances drop dramatically next week but the heat and humidity will only intensify as a big ridge of high pressure sets up shop. Long story short, plan on staying in air conditioning as much as possible for the considerable future.
