Cranking up the sweatbox

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - 9:45am

Mother Nature cranks up the sweatbox today. Afternoon highs reach the mid-90s, with feels-like numbers over 100 from 1pm-5pm. As the hot weather continues this week, keep in mind your sun and heat safety tips. Highs will reach the mid to upper-90s, with heat index values from 103-108 each day. As chances of rain drop-off tomorrow, sunny weather prevails all the way into the weekend. A wetter, slightly-cooler forecast returns by Monday, with highs falling back into the lower-90s on Tuesday. -Meteorologist Kyle Myers
