Heat and Humidity Coming Back

This Afternoon: Sunny and Hot, Increasing Humidity

Highs: Near 95º | Wind: SW 5-10

Friday: Sunny Very Hot and Humid, Chance T'storm Late

Highs: Near Record 101º | Heat Index: 105-110

This Weekend: Sunny Hot and Humid, Risk of mainly afternoon T'storms

Highs: Near 100º both days | Heat Index: Near 105 be careful outside

The heat is coming back but so far the humidity is still comfortable.  That will change overnight as the humidity increases and tomorrow with west winds, more humidity and temperatures near 100, the Heat Index will be close to 105º.  Over the next few days a weak weather front to our north will be the focus for clusters of thunderstorms to develop and some of these will drift over us, some could even come through Friday night.  Very hard to predict the exact location and timing of these Mesoscale Convective Complexes that may develop.  Through the weekend hot and humid and the risk of a passing cluster of storms to bring some temporary relief, but only add to the humidity.
