DANGEROUS HEAT AND HUMIDITY
Humidity will continue to climb along with the temperature on Wednesday and Thursday. Highs are expected to reach the middle 90s with heat index values ranging from 105-110°.
Be sure to drink plenty of water, take advantage of cooling centers and watch out for those most susceptible to the heat. Additionally, you should watch for signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Smoke from wildfires will continue to make skies hazy! Air quality issues are not expected over the next couple of days, but if you are sensitive to air quality issues it is recommended that you take it easy.
A weak cold front is expected to push through the state on Friday bringing slightly lower humidity and chances of showers and thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday. Severe weather is not anticipated at this time, but an isolated strong storm won’t be out of the question.
We will need to watch these rain chances closely over the next few days as an increase in rain chances could mean cooler temperatures. Stay tuned!
