Extreme heat expected today and tomorrow with dangerously high heat indices

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the area, which will remain in effect until 9 p.m. Tuesday. Sunday marks the second day in a row over 90 degrees and meteorologists expect Monday to have the same high temperatures, which would make it officially a heat wave.

Showers and storms are firing up out there this afternoon.

Weekend Outlook: More typical afternoon scattered storms are expected on Saturday with highs in the lower 90s.

A scattering of storms will occur this afternoon-evening with peak coverage at near 40-50%.

The most intense heat wave was in July of 1991 when we had 3 consecutive days of 100-degree heat!

Temperatures in the 90s are predicted to last throughout the week but could reach 100 degrees, according to the weather service. Your Fourth of July forecast will depend on how well that ridge can build back up by Wednesday. This week the upper-level ridge that would normally keep storm chances limited will weaken just enough to allow a disturbance in the Gulf to bring in higher storm chances.

High temperatures on Monday are expected to be brutal once again.

Some rain is in the forecast today and will provide a short lived break from the hot weather. Unfortunately, a cold front roaring through the region is what enacts this change and it will very likely fire up some strong, gusty thunderstorms as we trade out the humid air for the dry, more comfortable stuff.

"High pressure will be in place over the region today, leading to another very hot and humid day with risky heat", the National Weather Service said. We stay hot and sticky into Independence Day, but thankfully it will be slightly less unforgiving. Overnight, skies are partly to mostly clear. Today's high heat prompted the first widespread heat warning since August 2016. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be from 80-85 with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.
