Temperatures will likely hit the century mark for the first time in two years Thursday.  The triple digit heat will likely repeat itself Friday and Saturday, before slightly milder air returns next week.  Adding to the misery will be high humidity that will make it feel like 105 to 110 degrees during the hottest part of the day starting Thursday, lasting through Sunday.  The area of high pressure responsible for the upcoming heat wave will also make it difficult for thunderstorms to develop, so there will be very little in the way of afternoon thunderstorm relief for the next several days.  A frontal boundary approaches the area this weekend.  This will cause afternoon and evening thunderstorms to return in greater numbers this weekend.

 

Tonight - Partly cloudy with a 20% chance of a stray thundershower before 9 p.m.  Low in the lower 70s.  Calm wind.

Thursday - Mostly sunny and very hot with a 20% chance of a stray afternoon thundershower.  High near 100.  Heat index 105 to 110.  Wind north 3 to 8 mph.

Thursday Night - Mostly clear with a 10% chance of an early evening shower or thunderstorm.  Low in the middle 70s.  Calm wind.

Friday - Mostly sunny and very hot with a 20% chance of a stray afternoon thundershower.  High near 100.  Heat index 105 to 110.  Wind northwest 6 to 12 mph.
