Showers and thunderstorms will once again be a part of our forecast today. Best chances will be south of I-80, but it looks like we all will get a few through the midday timeframe. Later today, all it will take is a few hours of sunshine to get us up near 90 degrees.

Heat Index values will surge into the lower 100s if that happens. There are limited school early-dismissals due to the heat.n The heat will be with us for both days this weekend. Highs will reach up into the low to mid 90s with peak heat index values in the 100-105 range.

The heat will break by midweek next week with a chance of thunderstorms Tuesday into Wednesday.
