Oppressive weekend period expected with dangerous heat and heat index values both Saturday and Sunday…

A strong ridge over the NE US will flex Friday through the weekend with mid to upper 90s air temperatures expected both days, and very high heat index values between 105-110° with the worst heat index values found on Saturday. Saturday will be partly cloudy and hazy, and muggy and warm temperatures follow overnight. A partly cloudy Sunday follows with mid to upper 90s once again, with a late day t-storm possible.

Variably cloudy on Monday with scattered t-storms possible that will keep temperatures in check as a cold front moves through, and then we can all breathe a sigh of relief by Tuesday with partly cloudy skies, refreshing temperatures, and much lower humidity. The lower humidity theme continues Wednesday through Friday with mostly sunny skies expected, and only a slight moderation in temperatures by the end of the week.
