... Near record highs again today...

One last day of unusually high heat and humidity can be expected
to end the weekend. Highs, which will be at or near records, will
be in the upper 80s to lower 90s today with peak heat indices a
few degrees higher.

People planning and attending outdoor events and activities,
especially those participating in athletic events, should be
cognizant of these unusually warm and humid conditions. Take
breaks from the sun and heat if possible, and stay well hydrated
with plenty of water.
