What a change in temperatures from just a couple of days ago. Many
communities in the area were reported partly cloudy skies Saturday
with morning lows in the mid to upper 60s with mid afternoon highs
in the upper 80s to low 90s. The big change is the amount of
humidity that has moved into the area, heat index readings were
ranging in the upper 90s to just above 100 degrees Saturday

Hot and humid conditions have returned to the area for the weekend, with
temperatures soaring well into the 90s and heat index values
around 100 degrees due to the increase in humidity. A weather
disturbance approach the area resulting in a chance for showers
and storms this evening into much of Sunday. By Monday, much
lower humidity will filter into the area along with significantly
cooler temperatures. We will drop back down into the lower 80s for
the entire week, with some locales only reaching the upper 70s on
Tuesday. Temperatures will gradually moderate into mid 80s by the
end of the week, and that is also when rain chances will start to
pick up.
