For fans heading to Progressive Field to catch part of the Indians' three-game home stand against the Houston Astros, conditions will be dry but sticky.

Those with outdoor activities planned should take proper precautions and stay hydrated throughout the day as well as use sunscreen regularly.

Looking ahead, the heat will subside after midweek as temperatures could fall back into the 70s before next weekend.
