An Excessive Heat Watch will begin tomorrow and last through Saturday evening. Hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to make outdoor temperatures conducive to causing heat related illnesses. Highs today are expected to reach the low 90s with the heat index in the mid and upper 90s under mostly sunny skies. An isolated storm or two cannot be completely ruled out in the forecast today or tomorrow but most of us will be dry and all of us will be very warm.

Skies will be mostly clear tonight with lows falling to near 70 degrees. Highs tomorrow look to warm into the mid 90s with the heat index exceeding 100 degrees. That will be the case for the next few following afternoons also, which is why there is a heat watch in place.

July is the hottest month on average and it sure will start very warm. Afternoon temperatures readings will show upper 90s on Friday and Saturday. The rest of the Fourth of July holiday weekend will also be warm but temperatures will cool a bit.

A better chance for thunderstorms is back in the forecast for late in the weekend and on our Independence Day. Rain chances will continue into the middle of next week.
