As you can see in the picture from my weather app, they are calling for temperatures near 97 on Sunday. But the rest of the week looks like a scorcher with high temperatures in the upper 90s all week with a chance of rain on Friday. Keep in mind with our humidity means that the heat index will be 105 or greater so make sure to keep those plants and your pets cool and with plenty of water.

Remember that these temperatures are measured in the shade and of course the temperature in the sun is much hotter. Please make sure to take extra precautions if you work outdoors and make sure that you don't leave kids and pets in a hot car.
