.DISCUSSION...

Another very hot and humid day is in store for the region with
afternoon heat indices exceeding 105 degrees in many locations.
Chances for relief will be better seen starting tomorrow with
increasing clouds and shower coverage.

Rain chances will continue Monday and Tuesday...allowing for
temperatures to briefly fall into the lower 90s before the higher
heat makes a return for later in the week.
