We are on alert for hazardous heat and an elevated heat index on Saturday and Sunday.  Mostly sunny and dry this weekend but hot. Temps will surge into the mid-90s bringing the hottest days of the year to date. Light winds coupled with high humidity will jump the heat index 100-105 during the afternoon through early evening.  Scattered showers and storms return next week along with cooler weather.
