Posted: Updated:

Good Friday Morning,

It will be a hot and muggy day as temperatures climb to the mid-90s this afternoon. It will be a muggy morning, waking up to temperatures in the mid-70s. The humidity will be rather high today again, and a Heat Advisory isn't ruled out. The Heat Index looks to reach the mid-90s by lunchtime, and possibly near 101-102 this afternoon. Showers are possible from 11AM through 5PM, but it looks primarily limited to the Walden Ridge.

This evening looks hot, with a Heat Index still possible of 100 at 5PM-6PM. By 8PM the actual air temperature may still be in the low 90s, with heat indices in the upper 90s. Overnight looks dry with temperatures staying in the mid-70s. 

Saturday looks mainly dry with isolated showers developing by late afternoon and early evening. Sunday, storms look likely increasing after 5PM. Some of the storms look like they could be organized. We'll be watching the potential for a few strong storms then.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.
