Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Warm and humid conditions continue as light and variable winds are expected to stick around until early next week. Heat index values are likely to hang around near 100 degrees at lower elevations the next few days. Locally heavy showers and a slight chance for thunderstorms are expected through Saturday as moisture associated with Jimena and an upper level disturbance approaching from the northwest combine to bring unsettled weather. Trades will build by the middle of next week.
