ATLANTA, Ga. -
 
 HEAT CONTINUES TO BUILD IN TODAY, TOMORROW...

It was a sizzling day yesterday, and temperatures will only climb for your Friday and Saturday.  Right now, Friday is setting up to be our hottest day of the year so far, with highs around 96 degrees and a heat index value of around 100.  Skies will remain mostly sunny, with just a slight chance for a shower/storm in the afternoon.  Saturday will bring more of the same, with highs again in the upper 90s and heat index values around 100.  With this kind of heat, humidity, and full sun, it's crucial to be safe when spending time outdoors.  If you've got weekend plans that take you outside, stay hydrated and take breaks.  

It does look like some relief is on the way by the second half of the weekend.  A front will sink into the region, bringing a better chance for showers/storms on Sunday and likely limiting high temperatures to around 90.  Early next week, highs will drop to the middle and upper 80s, so much more typical temperatures for this time of year. 

Just a note -- we are also still watching the system in the Atlantic, Invest 96L, which is still on track to strengthen and possible become a Tropical Depression this weekend. We'll keep a close eye on it, and you can do the same at www.myfoxhurricane.com.
