CommuteCast: Awaiting a Major Taste of Summer
Extreme and potentially dangerous heat arrives tomorrow
Clouds were a little slow in burning off today, and combined with an onshore flow, they have held temperatures down a little lower than expected. Under increasingly sunny skies, highs are now heading toward the mid 80s across the area. Though we won't crack 90 today, the real heat is still on its way.
Tonight: Expect skies to be mostly clear with temperatures dropping down into the low 70s in the city and the upper 60s in the suburbs. Light southwest winds will add a nice breeze to the air for those venturing out to Friday night activities.
Tomorrow: Saturday will be a scorcher as temperatures quickly rise into the 90s during the day. Expect abundant sunshine, unbearable humidity, and highs topping out in the upper 90s accompanied by heat indices between 100 and 110. A few folks may be lucky (or unlucky) enough to skip right past the first 90-degree day milestone to a 100-degree reading.
