Western's Weather Wrap: Hot Father's Day Weekend


Sunday: Partly sunny and HOT, heat index near 102. But that does't mean it didn't feel like 100 degrees with the humidity.

The warning is in place in the metro area, while a less dire heat advisory is in effects for several counties surrounding and south of the Twin Cities. On top of the heat, there is a chance for an isolated shower in the afternoon.

Heat and humidity will return for much of next week with daily temperatures ranging from near 90 at the beach to the lower and middle 90s inland.

The heat-index values could rise up to 103 due to temperatures in the 90s and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

A few lingering showers will stick around Sunday night into Monday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a Code Orange air quality alert for Sunday.

Parts of the Northeast will also get quite warm, with heat index values in the upper 90s in NY and Philadelphia. A cold front settles in toward midweek, taming the heat just a bit, but also bringing back the chance for showers and storms. Heat index numbers (top line) may exceed 100° on Father's Day. Do not forget to stay hydrated, keep pets inside, and check in on the elderly to make sure they have proper working A/C.

Heat is the number one weather-related cause of death in the United States every year. Try to stay cool and keep in mind to wear light colored clothes and exercise early and late in the day.
