Another scorching day for us on tap as we head into the rest of our Wednesday. Big high pressure continues to dominate so that means very limited relief from the heat. Rain chances remain low to nonexistent in only about the 20% range. Highs this afternoon climb to around 97° with heat index values climbing to around 104° under mainly sunny skies. Moisture makes a gradual return as we head into the weekend with more impressive rain chances expected for Sunday.
