Discussion

Very hot conditions are in store for the next couple of days with highs temperatures today expected way up in the 90’s and then 100 degrees or even slightly higher on Saturday. The good news, however, is that there is some noticeable relief in sight. A frontal system will approach the region on Saturday night and it should drop slowly southward through the area by early next week. This frontal passage will cause a change in air masses and high temperatures are likely to hold in the 80’s for much of next week.
