Heat wave continues
A heat advisory remains in effect through Tuesday evening. Byron says skies were mostly clear overnight as morning low temperatures settled into the lower and middle 70's. Some scattered fog has developed again this morning cutting visibility in spots to less than a half mile. During the day, partly to mostly sunny skies will rule with highs in the 90's and feel like temperatures around 100. There is a chance the heat advisory will be extended into Wednesday.
