Hot & Humid & Hazy

Posted: Updated:

Dangerous heat is going to be the focus of today's weather with heat index number quickly reaching triple digits. Our afternoon high will be in the upper 90s. Heat index may climb to 100+ as early as 11am Thursday morning and stay there.

The winds will not be very active on this humid and hot day. Keep in mind this lack of wind will make it feel that much more muggy during the morning and evening hours. During the afternoon there will be a need to seek refuge away from the oppressive heat.

The ultraviolet index will be in the high to extreme category. Be sure to wear sun block and do your best to stay in the shade.

The chances of rain will stay a 'non-factor' until next week. There's a 40% chance of rain by Monday and 30% on Tuesday.
