It's been plenty hot and humid over the past few days but it will turn downright dangerous this afternoon and through the weekend as our heatwave reaches peak intensity.

Temperatures this afternoon will soar into the upper 90s making it the hottest day so far this year. When you factor in the humidity it will feel like 105 to as high as 112 in some areas! Excessive Heat Warnings have now been expanded to include most of the area.

Dry air in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere will prevent any storms from forming, with the exception of our far eastern counties that could see an isolated storm pop up.

Dangerous heat will continue right through the weekend with highs both Saturday and Sunday in the mid to upper 90s and heat index values well into the triple digits.

Stay Cool!
