Hot and Humid with Thunderstorm Chances Increasing Saturday

Temperatures will remain above normal through Saturday, and heat indices will be near 100 Saturday afternoon.  The combination of temperatures near 90 and dew-points in the 70s will create potentially dangerous heat index values again Saturday.  A frontal boundary will move across the Red River Valley late Saturday afternoon, and combine with an upper level disturbance, acting as a focus for thunderstorms. Some of these storms will be severe Saturday afternoon into Saturday night, so please keep abreast of the latest forecast, as well as any watches or warnings.  Cooler and drier weather should move in for Sunday the Fourth of July, and linger into much of the first full week of the month.  Stay tuned to the latest forecast this holiday weekend, and be sure to stay well hydrated during this very warm period.
