Excessive Heat Watch in effect

An Excessive Heat Watch is valid this Tuesday through Saturday as heat and humidity start to move back into the area. The main push will come Wednesday afternoon lasting through Saturday with high temperatures in the upper 90s to 100°F and heat index values between 105-110°F. 

One of the dangers with this event will be that low temperatures will not fall below 75°F, so there will be little to no relief from the heat for those without a way to cool down. With this being a longer duration event it is best to start hydrating now and adjust any outside activities for the end of the week to earlier in the day or later if possible.
