Temps could reach 100 today

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - A great day to head to the lake…river…bathtub filled with ice. 

Highs today will be near 100 degrees. 

If you want a silver lining, the humidity will be SLIGHTLY lower than it has been but still the heat index will be between 100 and 105 during the afternoon hours. 

We will have lots of sun today and tomorrow with no real chance of rain until Friday afternoon. 

Friday into the weekend we will see a few scattered showers and storms with highs in the mid-90s.

Please stay safe! Here are some tips:

- Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
- When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
- Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
- Check up on relatives and neighbors.
- Absolutely do not leave children or pets unattended in vehicles! 
- To reduce risk during outdoor work the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments.
- Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
- Heat stroke is an emergency...CALL 911.

We have several ways to keep you informed. You can track pop-up showers and zoom right to your neighborhood on the iRadar.

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More
