(KFVS) - After a cooler and showery weekend, the Heartland will be heating up and drying out again as we get into the work week.

Brian Alworth says this summer’s familiar upper-level high pressure area will be building back over the middle of the country, leading to a return of heat and humidity.

In the short-term, there is still a slight chance of a shower or storm tonight and Monday, but by Tuesday and Wednesday we should be clearing out and heating up.

Peak Heat Index numbers those afternoons look to be about 104-108 or so.

On Thursday, forecast models show the upper ridge shifting west a little bit.

This would allow a weak front to sink into the Ohio Valley from the north, possibly increasing storm chances again and bringing a slight moderation in the heat and humidity thanks to light north winds aloft.

Currently it looks like next weekend will be seasonably hot and humid, with mainly dry conditions.
