Excessive Heat Warning

Another very hot day with highs near 100 and heat index values of 105-110.  An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect for much of the tri-state with a Heat Advisory covering the rest of the area.  A cold front will slowly move our way late today with an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms.  The Storm Prediction Center has the entire tri-state under a Slight Risk for severe weather, with damaging winds and large hail the primary threat.  Chad Sewich will have details in the forecast.
