In case you couldn’t tell, it’s hot out.

A heat advisory called by the National Weather Service will run through 8 p.m. Friday. Today’s high will get to about 100 degrees and the heat index is expected to make temps feel like they’re even higher.

“It’s going to make it feel like it’s 100 to 110 degrees this afternoon and tomorrow,” said Zack Taylor.

That’s due to high temperatures combined with high humidity in the air.

Things should calm down by Friday night, although there’s a chance we could get showers and thunderstorms.

Temps will get back to normal over the weekend. Saturday’s high will be 87 degrees, and it should be sunny and clear. Sunday should be more of the same, with an 84 degree high. July 4 should be good weather, as NWS forecasts call for mostly sunny skies and a high of 83.
