Temperatures are about to get even hotter, but another big cool down is on the way next week.
Storms will weaken and move out of the state tonight allowing lows to drop into the lower 70s with mostly clear skies. Highs on Thursday will climb back into the mid and upper 90s with lower 100s southwest. The humidity will be high again tomorrow leading to heat indices from 100 to 108 across the state. Heat advisories are still out and will remain in effect through Friday.
Friday will likely be one of the hottest days so far this year, as a southwest wind brings in drier air. The humidity will not be as high, but since drier air heats up faster than moist air, 100s will be much more common.
A big pattern change is on the way next week, as another unseasonable cold front will move in. This will mean record lows in the northeast part of the country. This will knock our lows back into the 60s and our highs back into the 80s. Rain chances will go up by next Wednesday as well.
