Dangerously hot and humid weather is on the way Friday and Saturday.

 Prepare to practice heat safety.

Remember to wear lightweight, light-colored clothing, drink plenty of water, minimize sun exposure, and never leave children or pets in vehicles.

Also, check on the elderly, sick and those without air condition.


Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 80s on today along with fairly uncomfortable humidity levels. A lake breeze will keep shore locations a bit cooler. Friday and Saturday will feature dangerous heat and humidity with highs well into the 90s. A weak cold front will approach late Saturday night and move across the area on Sunday, bringing a risk for thunderstorms. Temperatures on Sunday will be not quite as hot, though it will still be very warm and uncomfortably humid.
