**EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING FRIDAY & SATURDAY**
**HEAT ADVISORY FOR GENESEE & WYOMING COUNTIES**

Get ready for the hottest weather of the summer to date.

We have a classic case of summer sizzle to talk about for your Friday. Air temperatures in the lower 90s combined with dew points in the mid 70s will make it feel more like 100-105° with a few select spots checking in with heat index values of 110°. Excessive heat warnings have been issued for most of the area Friday and Saturday. Sunday will still be very humid, but not quite as warm, due to a better chance for scattered showers and storms with a cold front. Then, much fresher air returns for much of next week following that cold front.

In regards to rain, we’ll be keeping an eye on several clusters of storms that like to strengthen at night to possibly drop through the area Saturday morning and again on Sunday morning, very early. We’ll see a much better chance for area-wide rain and storms later Sunday and into early Monday with that cold front, followed by dry weather and sun next week. 

FRIDAY: Hazy, hot and humid. A spot thunderstorm possible in the afternoon and again later at night.
HIGH: 93 (Heat Index: 100-110°)
