Heat advisory issued as we head towards triple digit temps by Saturday

Another very warm and tropical start to our day on this Friday with our temps quickly heating up with the sunshine and warm air mass that’s across the state. There is a Heat Advisory in affect for the whole viewing area throughout our day today and all of Saturday.

High temps will make it back into the upper 90s to near 100 in a few spots later into the afternoon. While the rain chances are very small, it’s not out of the question to have an isolated afternoon thundershower or two pop up somewhere across the viewing area like we have seen in the past couple of days. That will be about a 5 to 10% coverage area at most throughout the afternoon and evening.

Saturday will be another scorcher with highs at or near the 100 degree mark with heat index values into the 106 to 110 range for all of the afternoon and evening. There again will be a very small chance of an isolated pop up shower or two but that would be about the extent of it.

A back door cold front, swinging in from the north and east out of north Georgia which is going not only going to bring us a shot at some scattered showers but also some drier and cooler air. Temps will begin to cool down into the lower 90s for highs and the overnight lows will begin cooling into the upper 60s and lower 70s.
