(KFVS) -

Good morning, it is Thursday, July 12.

First Alert Forecast

A majority of the Heartland will be not as humid today. However, high temps will still be in the lower 90s.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says our most southern counties will not get much relief, though.

They are still under a heat advisory with feels-like temps that will top out above 100 degrees.

Friday, we’ll wake up in the 60s. Soak it up, because it won’t last long and the humidity will return for the weekend.

The weekend will be very hot and humid with scattered showers possible all weekend.
