A heat advisory is in effect for the entire area through Sunday evening and will likely be extended into Monday.
For the rest of tonight...a few evening thundershowers, giving way to fair skies overnight. Lows very warm...in the mid 70s. Muggy, too!
By Sunday, highs will be near 100, with heat indices around 105 or higher.
I expect high temperatures to generally be in the lower 100s from Sunday through Wednesday, with a little relief to the triple digit heat by late week.
Each afternoon will offer a slim chance for isolated storms. Any storms that do develop have the potential to produce severe straight-line winds. You can get severe weather warning information instantly by follow me on Twitter by clicking here.
Keep your pets inside during this heat and also check on those less fortunate who may not have access to a cooled residence. Drink plenty of water if you plan to be outdoors.
