The official beginning of Summer is now less than a week away. This weekend gives us a preview!

The sizzle of Summer will be here in full force by this weekend. You begin seeing the first hints of that today. I think we'll run right to the upper 80s today. Humidity shouldn't be a major issue out there today. It will definitely be noticeable, but not quite as impressive as I think the weekend numbers reach.

You will begin feeling all the heat you can stand on Saturday. Most areas will hover right at 90. When you add in the humidity, expect the feels like to be around the mid 90s. Numbers like that will be on the high end. I do expect some will see those numbers, but most will not get that out of hand!

Sunday features the best chance to go a couple of degrees above 90. Again, the high level of humidity will mean that we see Heat Index values that will be all over the mid 90 degree range.

Next week features showers & thunderstorms. Those daily chances will return to the region! It also will mean that we see temperatures drop back into the low 80s. It will be a nice change to get out of the heat. It just comes with a wet price tag.
