Heatwave continues, with a slight chance for storms

Temperatures in the 90's continue, with relief coming by the end of the week.

JULY 15, 2017 - This will be a great week to stay indoors if you have air conditioning. 

Tonight should be a mild night, getting down to 68 degrees with little, if any, clouds in the sky. 

Tomorrow, the heat will continue as we will jump right back up to 92.  Dew points will remain in the upper 60's and 70's so the heat index should be in the upper 90's yet again. 

The heat will not let up throughout the week, as Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are all hitting the upper 90's.  If this is the case, we will see heat indexes in the triple digits all three of those days.  

We do have a slight chance of rain on Tuesday night, into Wednesday morning, these showers and storms will be brief, as they are not expected to cool us down much throughout the day. 

We do see a slight cooldown on Thursday and Friday, getting up to only the mid to upper 80's, but still right around our average temperature of 86 for this time of year. 

The relief is short lived however, as temperatures will rise back into the mid 90's on Saturday. 

When it is this hot outside, make sure you take some extra precautions. 

Drink plenty of water, and always keep some extra on hand. 

Avoid over-exerting yourself outdoors, keep the activities light. 

Most importantly, make sure you don't leave your children, and even pets, in your car.
