Additional humidity will make it feel like the middle 90s between 10 am and 4 pm. If you plan to spend much time outside today, drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated, and avoid high-energy activities during the midday heat, if possible.

Expect a mostly sunny sky through lunchtime. There is an extreme UV index today, so keep the sunscreen around because it only takes a few minutes to burn under these conditions.

The sea breeze will form this afternoon, triggering a few showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. There is the threat of heavy rainfall and frequent lightning within storms today.

A few lingering storms this evening, then mainly clear, still humid tonight, with lows in the 70s by Sunday morning.

Still unsettled through the end of the weekend, with the chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms as highs remain near normal, in the mid to upper 80s.

Higher moisture levels will continue into early next week, with a few storms along the east coast on Monday and Tuesday. An onshore wind moves in on Wednesday and Thursday, which will help push most storm activity toward the Lake region rather than the coast.

Expect warming temperatures next week, with above-normal temperatures, in the low to mid-90s. Heat index values will make it feel like the triple digits. Heat advisories may be issued next week if heat index values approach 105 or higher for at least 2 hours.
