EXTENDED FORECAST:

Thursday and Friday will be the hottest days of the week with highs between 96°-97° and a heat index up to 105°.

It is likely a Heat Advisory will be issued for the remainder of the week with a heat index forecast pushing 105° each day.

Looking ahead at the weekend, a stray shower is possible Saturday with otherwise mostly sunny skies and highs near 95° and heat index up to 106°.

Our next best chance of rain returns late Sunday, 30%. Highs still reach 92° -- but the rain will bring a little relief from the heat.
