Heat Advisory for Thursday with feels-like temps over 100 degrees

Even hotter coming up before the temperatures drop around the Tri-State
July heat advisory

Call it a "two-fer" for us. Showers and storms may pop off overnight as lows drop only to the low 70s! A few stronger, possibly severe, storms cannot be ruled out, but the better threat is to the north. The Storm Prediction Center has a portion of the Tri-State in risk. Obviously, the heat is the other story as a HEAT ADVISORY is out for noon today and Friday with feels-like temps over 100 degrees!

Then, the story is all about the heat. A Heat Advisory begins at noon on Thursday as the temperature eventually rises to 94 with a heat index of 103 degrees. It will be partly cloudy and very humid. The Heat Advisory means that there is an increased chance for

heat exhaustion and heat stroke for anyone working outdoors. 

The heat advisory continues for Friday as well with temperatures rising to 97 with a heat index between 100 to 106 degrees. The sky will be mostly sunny and winds will be in from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph. The heat advisory ends at 9 p.m. If we hit 97°, it will be the first time since August 8, of 2012... That was 4,000+ days ago.

Isolated showers and storms return this weekend on Saturday as a cool front passes through the Ohio Valley. It will eventually help break the heat and take temperatures back to seasonal levels in the mid to upper 80s.
