TUESDAY-FRIDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and hot. Highs stay in the mid 90s, which is well above normal for this time of year. Heat indices may surpass 100 at times during peak heating. While a few stray showers or storms can’t be ruled out each day most spots in our area will NOT experience any rain or natural relief from the heat. Lows should remain near 70 each morning.

WEEKEND: There could a be a few isolated storms and showers Saturday but the chance of moisture may be higher Sunday into Monday as a disturbance moves across the region. If we’re lucky this scenario will pan out since it would cool temperatures back down to more September-like levels.
