Hot and dry holiday weekend!

Humidity will begin to ramp back up for the new week which will bring back some rain chances!

If you're not a fan of the heat, you will need to buckle in! Temperatures for the holiday weekend will keep us in the 90s but the humidity will add to the head in the next few days. 

Lots of sunshine will be seen for both Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 90s. Luckily, humidity won't be terrible for the weekend but that doesn't mean heat index values will subside. Heat indices expected to be in the mid 90s. If you have those outdoor festivities planned, be sure to drink plenty of water and wear light clothing! Stay safe this holiday weekend. 

An area of high pressure will also keep rain chances at bay for the weekend, but with the heat this weekend we can't rule out some very isolated and short showers that pop up before sunset. Most of us will see a very dry weekend! 

Temperatures in the 90s are here to stay for the next week and humidity will continue to build into the new work week. This will also bring back some storm chances starting mid week. Right now, chances are very isolated for storms but we will continue to keep an eye on it!
