It's going to be a rough weekend. There's an excessive heat warning Saturday and a risk of severe storms Sunday.

Overnight: Hazy, Very Warm and Humid

Lows: 78-85 | Wind: Light

Saturday: Sunny, Extreme Heat and Humidity, Chance T'storms Late

Highs: 100-105 | Heat Index: 110-115

Sunday: Sunny, Hot, Humid, Risk Severe Thunderstorms

Highs: 94-99 | Rain: 60% Chance Severe Thunderstorms

The searing heat continues.  Saturday will be the peak with the high reaching 103° which would be a new record and some spots perhaps as high as 105°  Excessive heat warning for Saturday.  By Sunday a cool front will be close to bring some relief but with the high heat and humidity, that "relief" also means the risk of severe thunderstorms Sunday afternoon.  The front will slowly slide south and early next week finally a break in our run of 95° days.  Be safe over this weekend and hope everyone's power is back.
