Searing sunshine, intense humidity dominate the late-week forecast

**EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT AREA-WIDE, THROUGH SATURDAY AT 8 PM**

The sky is clear, and looks to stay that way overnight tonight. However, it’s going to be another warm and humid night. Most of the region will see temperatures drop off into the 70s overnight, but some spots may only get as far as the low 80s.

The heat wave we’re in the midst of, will continue heading into the weekend. More sunshine and hot weather is on tap for tomorrow with highs ranging from the upper 90s to lower 100s. Once again though, it won’t be a dry heat. High dew points will help heat index values to range roughly between 105° and 110°.

A slightly different picture will be painted come Saturday. It’ll still be a hot and humid one with temperatures in the upper 90s to lower 100s once again, but our northern areas will see their temperatures cool off sooner than our southern areas. That’s due to our next cold front that’ll swing through from north to south. That cold front will also give us our next chance of some scattered showers and storms beginning late Saturday afternoon, with some rain spilling over into Sunday, as well.

Sunday will see a rain chance, but also cooler temperatures. Temperatures will bump back down into the lower 90s for most, with upper 80s to kick off the brand new work week come Monday.
