Hot Once Again

Expect hot temperatures with heat index readings pushing 100° for the sixth straight day. Highs will 'barely' reach 90° this afternoon. I can't rule out a stray thunderstorm early. This morning's temperatures are pleasant with many of us in the upper 60's and lower 70's. This afternoon will see an increase in showers and storms with some reaching strong to severe limits again today. At this point in the 7-day forecast, we don't see a break in the hot weather.
