Friday July 19, Saturday July 20, Sunday July 21

It looks like it will be an excellent weekend! The weather for today will be mostly sunny with a high near 85 and a low around 71. Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high near 84 and a low around 71. Sunday will be partly sunny with a high near 82 and a low around 67. A chance of showers and thunderstorms on Sunday, mainly after 2pm.

It’s not very often we have a heat advisory from the National Weather Service but from noon today to 8:00pm on Saturday: the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.
