Temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 90s Saturday and Sunday with heat index values in the triple digits in the afternoon. A shower cannot be totally ruled out for the weekend but looks like most, if not all, of the weekend stays dry.


The heat looks to continue into next week with temperatures in the lower 90s on Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

Highs get back into the mid-90s by the middle of next week.
