A SCORCHER FRIDAY:
Expect partly to mostly sunny skies once again, with afternoon highs topping out in the mid 90s. Isolated chance for a shower/storm stays to our north and east today. High humidity will send heat index values soaring into the triple digits...near 105 in some cases. Exercise caution and drink plenty of fluids if you must be outdoors during the hottest time of the day. It will be very warm and very muggy for Football Friday night, with temperatures still around 90 and heat indices in the upper 90s to near 100 as many games kick off. Lows only drop into the mid mid 70s.

HEAT WAVE ROLLS ON:
We'll remain hot and very humid into the weekend, with the only real relief coming from a few late day/early evening stray showers or storms. Highs stay in the mid 90s both days with triple digit heat indices. There's a touch of relief showing up late in the period, with slightly better storm chances Wednesday into Thursday along with a return to more seasonable temperatures.
