The Heat is On!

Hot, humid weather will continue through the rest of the week, and into the weekend. A Heat Advisory has been issued for much of our area for Tuesday. This means heat index values are expected to be over 105 in the afternoon. The heat index is what it feels like outside when you factor in the humidity. Heat Advisories are likely each afternoon through the rest of the week.
