We feel the full effects of the incoming warmup today just in time for the Fourth of July. Temperatures rise near the 90° mark along with increasing humidity.
We'll rise to the mid 80s by noon today and be in the lows 90s by the afternoon and evening. Skies stay mostly sunny, with just a few high level clouds. No rain is expected whatsoever today and winds should be light, making for good conditions for fireworks tonight.
Tonight sees temperatures only fall to the upper 60s. It'll also feel a little muggy, but skies stay mostly clear.
Monday sees a bit of a repeat of Sunday with highs in the low 90s, mostly sunny skies, and increasing humidity. Heat index values may approach the mid 90s by Monday afternoon.
The heat sticks around for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. A weather system arrives Wednesday, introducing rain and storm chances for the middle of the week.
How long will the heat last? I'll have that answer at 6AM and 8AM this morning as well as tonight at 6PM and 11PM on ABC21.
