...Rccap of hot and humid weekend with periods of thunderstorms...

Thursday July 21 through Sunday July 24, 2016 was a stretch of muggy
and occasionally stormy weather. Dewpoints crept into the upper 70s
to low 80s at times and high temperatures topped in the middle 90s
during this period. Gusty and even damaging winds occurred along
with very heavy rainfall, and lightning was abundant given the very
unstable atmosphere.

Below is a listing of maximum heat index values reported each day
for a few selected locations. Readings are in degrees F.
