After a stormy afternoon yesterday, skies are expected to become partly cloudy today as high pressure moves into the region. This will keep the precipitation away through the end of the workweek, but will also allow temperatures to easily climb into the middle nineties today and tomorrow. This heat combined with elevated humidity levels will cause heat index values to climb into the lower hundreds over the region. There is a slight risk for showers and thunderstorms over the weekend and early into the workweek as a weak trough develops over the region. Even with the risk for precipitation, temperatures are expected to remain warm with highs approaching the century mark on Saturday. If you have to be out in the heat, please make sure that you take it easy by taking plenty of breaks in the shade or an air conditioned environment and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
