TODAY'S FORECAST: We'll see mostly sunny skies through out the day. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible during the afternoon hours, but the majority of us will be dry - not getting much relief from the heat. Highs will be in the mid-upper 90s with feels like temperatures over 110 degrees. Tonight, expect mostly clear skies overnight with lows in the upper 70s.
Looking Ahead: Rain coverage will be minimal the next several days, as we will be under the influence of high pressure. High pressure typically leads to lower rain chances and warmer temperatures and that is what we will continue to see through at least mid next week with highs staying in the mid 90s.
