Heat and humidity continue through Friday, but cooler this weekend

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  The heat and humidity will continue to be pretty intense through Friday.  This weekend, temps will trend back down to more normal levels and we may even see a few showers and storms heading into Labor Day.

Today, the average high is 87.  We will climb to 92 with a heat index of about 95.  Skies will be partly cloudy and the rain chance is low, only 20%.

Thursday will be even hotter as the high gets up to 93.  I expect a high in the low 90s Friday as well.

For the weekend, temps will trend downward.  Saturday will see a high of 88.  Clouds will increase through the day, and we will have a few scattered thunderstorms on and off through the afternoon.

Sunday will be similar, only a bit cooler.  Look for a high of 85 with, again, a few afternoon storms here and there.

Labor Day will be about the same with a high of 85 and a 30% chance for afternoon storms.

You can find the WRCB forecast also in this morning's Times Free Press.  Don't forget to track the tropics with the WRCB weather app.     David Karnes
