Dangerous heat builds in for the weekend
Heat is going to be the big story for the next several days. This will likely be the hottest week of the year! We already see over a dozen states will head advisories and excessive heat warnings from Texas all the way up to the Dakotas.
This is what it will feel like by 3pm each afternoon for the next 4 days. Dangerous heat arrives this weekend, and Sunday will not be any better as we’ll also see heat indices between 105 and 110.
Here are some tips to help keep you safe during the extreme heat.
Today will likely be our 10th 90+ degree day of the year! And we’ll add several more over the coming days. In addition, we’ll have a daily chance for spotty afternoon storms. Today and tomorrow we’ll have a 20% chance for a storm after 3pm and by Friday and the weekend that goes up to a 30% chance.
If your weekend plans take you out to IMS this weekend heat indices will range between 105 and 110 both afternoons. We’ll have a 30% chance for an afternoon T-shower, but we will be dry for the Kid Rock concert.
We get some relief from the stifling heat and humidity early next week.
