The heat continues to increase halfway through the week. Laura Wibbenmeyer says a nice morning will turn into a very warm afternoon.

Humidity values won’t be terrible today but highs will be near 90.

There are slight rain chances over the next couple days as we see dew points climb, therefore heat and humidity will be increasing in the coming days.

A hot and humid weekend with scattered thunderstorms is in store. That hot and humid pattern continues into next week.
