...Dangerous Heat and Humidity through Sunday...

.Dangerously hot and humid weather is expected across much of the
mid-state through Sunday. Strong high pressure will cause
temperatures to climb well into the 90s with afternoon heat index
values from 100 to 106, with very little overnight relief.

Afternoon highs on Monday will fall back into the low 90s, which
should alleviate the need for a Heat Advisory.
