Today through Sunday we're really cranking up the heat and humidity, with "feels like" temperatures near or above 100 degrees. This heat can be dangerous, but only if you're not taking care of yourself. You know what to do!

Humidity on the rise, kicking off brutal heat wave

There is a chance for an isolated thunderstorm around sunset tonight. Otherwise it will be very warm and humid with low temperatures only in the mid-upper 70s. That won't help cool off your home if you open the windows.

The excessive heat and humidity continues through Sunday. Once again highs will soar into the mid-90s to near 100 degrees coupled with high humidity. There is another chance for an isolated storm Sunday afternoon. But the cold front that will put an end to the heat and humidity moves through on Monday.

Tuesday we finally lose both the heat and humidity.
