Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

The hottest temperatures so far this summer are possible this weekend. Not only will the heat increase, but so will the humidity. If you don't like the heat and humidity, another cool snap moves in next week. There will be a chance for storms again on Sunday. If you are going to be outdoors this weekend, make sure you apply sunscreen because it won't take long to get a sunburn. Take care! -Justin
