It appears that the heat wave will last into the weekend. The heat advisory remains in effect until 7pm tonight, however there are no plans to reissue for the weekend. Temperatures tonight under a clear sky will drop back to the low 70′s.

A sunny hot day is forecast for Saturday. Highs should again climb to the lower 90′s with the heat index pushing 100. Sunday looks dry for much of the day. Clouds should begin to build late in the afternoon or during the evening. Highs should once again be in the low 90′s.

Rain and thunderstorms should break out overnight Sunday into Monday. The rain should stick around through at least mid-day then begin to end from north to south. Cloud cover and a north wind should hold highs Monday to the mid and upper 70′s.

A much cooler air mass then builds in for a few days with much lower humidity. Lows Tuesday and Wednesday may settle to the mid and upper 50′s giving the air conditioning a break. High temperatures return to around 80 Tuesday then mid 80′s Wednesday as a south wind quickly begins to usher the heat back.

90;s are possible by late in the week along with a day to day chance for thunderstorms. Timing and placement of these storm complexes will be critical in temperature forecasting.
