6:50 pm
till on monday with those high ermidity levels, and some storms are possible ohe weekend, especialbu later sunday, t it's really on monday where i'm seeing thunderstorms in the forecast. some of those storms could be stro to severe because of all an of the heat humidity out there. something ll be keeping a close eye on. right now 95 degrees and feeling like so 4 with the mugginess out there, a southerly wind at 13 iles an hour. we have an excessive heat warning in effect until 9:00 p.m. tonight, and it will continue to feel like triple digits out there until 9:00 p.m. we have an accepted heat warning tomorrow until1:00 9:00 p.m. and then a heat watch on sunday that will either become a heat advisory or another excessive heat warning. this is your saturday planner, but can you pcoetty much nt it as your sunday planner as well. no changes out there, just a chance for storms later on sunday. i mean it's 81 degrees to start off the day. it feels like 90. lunchtime it'sangerously 96
