Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 97°
  • 74°

 

The dangerous heat continues into the weekend.  A heat advisory remains in effect for the Valley through 9pm this evening. 

We'll see more sunshine than clouds again today quickly warming temperatures into the mid and upper 90s. The heat index should top 100°, and a few spots could be above 105°.  While a stray shower can't be completely ruled out, most of us at looking at dry weather. Tonight will be quiet, warm, and muggy again. 

Sunday brings more of the same, although we should see a few isolated showers or storms during the afternoon and evening. As we head into the next work week look for this extreme heat to lose its grip on the area.  A few isolated storms are possible on Monday with highs reaching back into the lower 90s. 

Dry weather is expected for Tuesday and Wednesday, and although highs will be back in the low 90s, the humidity should be more tolerable. Timing our next cool front is still somewhat in question but it looks like a better chance for scattered showers and temperatures easing back into the 80s will come late next week.
