**HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 P.M.**

Heat and humidity will continue to be the weather headline with afternoon "feels-like" temperatures exceeding 100 degrees. Friday will be mostly sunny with light southwesterly winds. High temperatures will reach for the upper 90s. Accompanied by very high dew points, a real gauge of the humidity (as opposed to "relative humidity" which can be misleading), the human body will sense a temperature near 105 degrees for several hours in the peak heat of the day. Take it easy outside and stay hydrated. Overnight will be mostly clear and sticky with a low in the upper 70s.Saturday will be hot too but we'll be awaiting the arrival of a cold front--using the word cold loosely. A few showers and thunderstorms moving through with the front will mark a return to more seasonable readings for the second half of the weekend and early next week. Expect highs near 90 and lows near 70.
