***An Excessive Heat Watch will go into effect Wednesday afternoon through Saturday evening as heat indices could make it feel like 105-110 degrees outside.

The remnants of Barry will bring some lingering clouds for your Tuesday. There's also a chance for an isolated shower as a weak disturbance pushes through from the west. Expect most, if not all, to stay dry. We'll have one more day of near average temperatures in the middle to upper 80s.

A prolonged heat wave is expected to begin Wednesday as temperatures climb to the highest we have seen so far this year. Upper 90s are a good bet with head indices make it feels like in the 100s from Wednesday through the weekend. We'll get little relief during the overnight hours as lows will only go down to the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

It is possible the actual air temperature reaches 100 degrees on Friday into Saturday. Now is a good time to prepare for the prolonged heat and remember to be staying hydrated and limiting time spent outdoors.
