Today's Weather: A Pleasant Day Ahead Of A Warm Week

The July Fourth weekend wasn't perfect, but we did have a good deal of sunshine each afternoon, as well as relatively warm temperatures yesterday.

A generally weak area of high pressure will be here for the next two days with pleasant conditions and mostly dry weather. The humidity won't be oppressive.

Wednesday Thursday and Friday are very warm days and it will be quite hot by Thursday and Friday. Heat will be building in the center of the country where readings could feel over 100 much of the week.

Locally, there is the possibility the combination of the heat and humidity will make it feel like it's in the mid-90s. That would lead to a heat advisory being issued later this week. If you are going to be working outside the second half the week, be aware and safe.

Temperatures will drop, but it will still remain humid for the end of the week. There could also be a couple of showers by then.
