...Heat indices of 90 to 100 the rest of the afternoon...
Temperatures warming into the 85 to 90 degree range along with
high humidities have pushed heat indices into the 90 to 100 range
across much of the area this afternoon. Use caution if spending
prolonged periods of time outdoors during the rest of the
afternoon...as we have not experienced heat indices this high for
several weeks. Take breaks and drink plenty of water.
The warm and humid conditions with afternoon heat indices in the
90 to 100 range will persist through the weekend.
