5 days down, 2 to go.

Tomorrow is the grand finale!  Friday will be the hottest and most humid day of this heat wave AND of the year to date! Temperatures will flirt with 100 degrees and the heat index will be well into the triple digits. A storm or two could fire up in the afternoon. But most towns will stay dry.  Thunderstorms will become widespread Saturday afternoon as a cold front approaches. Some could be strong to severe. Saturday will be the final day in the 90s with high humidity before relief arrives Sunday.

Tonight: Chance storm. Warm and humid. Low: 70s.

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, very hot and oppressively humid. Chance for a storm or two during the afternoon. Most stay dry. Heat index 105 or greater. High: Mid – upper 90s

Saturday: Partly cloudy, hot and oppressively humid. Scattered thunderstorms starting midday. Any storm that develops could be strong to severe. High: Upper 80s – low 90s

Sunday: Relief at last! Mostly sunny, noticeably less humid and cooler than recent days. High: Low –mid 80s.

Monday: Partly cloudy, comfortable. Refreshing at night with a low temperature near 60 degrees. High: Low –mid 80s.
