...HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS EXPECTED ON MONDAY...
High pressure continues to build into the region. This will bring
dry and increasingly hot weather to the region on Monday.
High temperatures Monday are expected to warm into the upper 80s

to 100 degree range. The highest heat indices are expected
between 1 and 6 PM local time.
With a large number of people expected to be outdoors on Monday due
to the upcoming solar eclipse, the potential for heat related

light colored clothing. Be sure to drink plenty of water and find
