Higher Heat Kicks In Midweek

WOWT 6 News' Chief Meteorologist Rusty Lord says temps will warm into the lower '90's Monday afternoon. He says a south wind will keep the humidity in place with dew points in the '60's likely.

Heat indeces likely will move into the upper '90's for a few hours in the afternoon.

Tuesday through Thursday, the highs hit the upper '90's to near 100 for many places in the region, with humidity pushing heat index values toward 105 at times each afternoon.

The National Weather Service in Omaha says it will be hazardous heat that arrives in their region Tuesday and Wednesday, as heat indices climb into the 104 to 112 degree range.

A front will end the heat wave by Friday. The weather service reminds us to make sure we are taking proper precautions.
