Spot afternoon storm chances
Posted at 4:38 PM, Jul 31, 2022

Monday is the beginning of a stretch of hot and humid days, highs will be into the middle 90s with heat index values feeling closer to 100. There is also another chance for an isolated storm during the afternoon, but most if not all remain dry.

The winds will crank out of the south on Tuesday bringing in the extreme heat, temperatures will run into the century mark with highs topping out at 101. Heat index values could be as high as 110 in spots. Even the overnight low of 80 is still dangerous as it does not allow the body to refresh from the heat. Keep those heat safety precautions in mind.

A cold front will make its way into the area on Wednesday bringing a better chance for thunderstorms, it will also knock the temperatures back into the 90s for the afternoon high.

The cold front does not do much good heat relief-wise as temperatures rebound into the upper 90s by the end of the week.
