The high humidity and the unrelenting heat are combining to give us heat index values of 105 to 115 degrees during the afternoons. This heat will do a number on your body, so make sure to drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks if you’re planning to be outside. 

Wrapping up the week

The temperatures will hang out in the mid-90s for the rest of the week and weekend. The heat index will still be overwhelming and the abundant sunshine won’t help. While we will have a decent breeze, it won’t be enough to make it feel much cooler.

If you’re heading to the beach this weekend, you’ll definitely want to be in the water. Besides the heat, you’ll have the green light for the sand and surf. Just be sure to pack plenty of water and a beach umbrella.
