    Paul Barys' Wednesday late evening forecast

    The heat and humidity I have promised is on schedule.  Today is not very comfortable and the next few days will be even more so.  I am expecting lots of sunshine for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Highs will generally be in the mid 90's and the heat index will be near 100 to 102.  By Sunday an isolated storm may develop, especially in the Blue Ridge mountains.
