A high of 99 degrees was reached today, but things are going to get hotter going into the weekend. More above normal days in the triple digits are in the forecast with plenty of sun.
A upper level high is expected to increase in strength to our East, which will help fuel the atmosphere with dry air (sinking air). Rain chances are not in the forecast for the weekend.
Staying hydrated throughout the day can help decrease your chances of getting overheated or having a heat stroke. Wearing sunscreen can protect your skin from UV radiation.
All these factors can help you stay safe in the summer heat. Find cool ways to stay cool with the family. Creating a water slide or running through the sprinklers are some ways to stay cool, especially if you are unable to go to the pool.
