Excessive Heat Warning for Friday
Most of the NBC15 area returns to the middle and upper 90s for Friday, with heat index values over 110 degrees. Take these multiple days and nights of high heat and humidity seriously. Over time, the stress on your body increases. Remember too, that if you are in direct sun, or on pavement or even sand, additional heat reaches you from reflection and radiation from below. Hot pavement is dangerous for your dog too, so walk him or her on grass, in the shade.
Stay hydrated, and take breaks from strenuous tasks.
Lows remain in the middle 70s. Highs remain in the middle 90s. Afternoon rain coverage stays around a quarter of the area for Friday, a third of the area on Saturday, and still less than half the area on Sunday.
Wetter weather starts back up on Monday, with the heat easing a bit.
