The heatwave continues for today and through much of the weekend. A strong ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the area from the west allowing our afternoon temperatures to be very uncomfortable and above average in the mid-upper 90’s. Heat index values will rise above 100 and approach 105 in some locations. A trough will try to nudge its way into our area over the weekend allowing for the slight chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. Higher rain chances will return for the beginning of the work week.
