High temperatures are on track to be hotter heading into the weekend. Our afternoons will be topping out in the middle to upper 90s. Over the holiday weekend, there is a decent chance that because of ample moisture, heat index temperatures will be over 100°.
The higher the heat index is, the harder it becomes for your body to cool off due to the increase of moisture in the atmosphere. If you will be working outdoors or doing anything outside, be sure to take plenty of breaks and to stay hydrated.
This hazy, hot, and humid patter will not be changing until the end of next week at the earliest, when some rain chances return to the region. The next chances for rain will not be until the possibly the first weekend of June.
