Perhaps the hottest weather so far this year is on the way!

Our area is faced with the possibility of temperatures in the high 90s and even over 100 degrees on Thursday and Friday. This means heat index values in the Townsquare Media coverage area could reach as high as 110 degrees on Thursday and Friday.

It’s still early in the week and this information could change pending weather conditions.

Our advice is to stay temperature-aware and practice heat safety.
