Four down, three to go.

Watch my 4 pm forecast!

Four days down, three days to go. The heat and humidity will get worse before it gets better.  The combination will make it feel like up to 105 degrees on Thursday.  While an isolated storm is possible in the afternoon, scattered storms are more likely Friday.  Then numerous storms will sweep through the state Saturday as a cold front approaches. Any storms that develop Friday or Saturday could be on the strong side. Relief from the heat arrives Sunday with humidity falling throughout the day.
Tonight: Warm and humid. Low: 70s
Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, hot and increasingly humid. Chance for a few afternoon thunderstorms. Heat index 100-105 degrees. High: Mid to upper 90s
Friday: Partly cloudy, very hot and oppressively humid. Scattered afternoon storms, some strong. Heat index 105 or greater. High: Mid to upper 90s
Saturday: Partly cloudy, hot and oppressively humid. Scattered thunderstorms. Any storm that develops could be strong to severe. High: Upper 80s and low 90s
Sunday: Relief at last! Mostly sunny, noticeably less humid and cooler than recent days. High: Low to mid 80s
Monday: Partly cloudy to mostly sunny and less humid. High: Low 80s. Refreshing at night with a low temperature near 60 degrees.

Better video quality(720p) please. I can't even look at that video you posted it's such low quality. We have broadband!

There is nothing I can do about the video quality. I'm sorry! That's the standard format of our videos.
