Our first 90 degree high temperature of the year is likely this weekend! You’ll want to find ways to stay cool, as heat is the most dangerous type of weather. More people die each year from heat related illness than any other type of weather in the United States.
Saturday will be mostly sunny with highs near or just above 90. Dew points will feel tropical in the middle 60s. This will make the afternoon heat index, or what it feels like, climb to the middle 90s.
On Sunday there are a few more question marks when it comes to cloud cover which could affect temperatures, but dew points will top out near 70. If temperatures get to the 90s again, then it will feel like the upper 90s, possibly near 100 Sunday afternoon.
The other thing that could affect temperatures is the chance for rain and storms. Scattered showers and thunderstorms could pop up at any time in the heat and humidity, but become a bit more likely later in the day and overnight. If they form early, our temperatures will be lower, though it’ll still have oppressive humidity.
Next week looks very summer-like with highs in the mid 80s along with humidity and scattered shower and storm chances pretty much all week, though there will be periods where it is dry.
