The summer heat will be in full force this weekend with highs in the low to mid-90s and Feels Like temperatures of 102 to 104 degrees during the heat of the day.

If you were hoping for a cooling shower you probably won't be in luck. Rain chances will be 10 percent Saturday and only 20 percent Sunday.   

The only saving grace from the heat may be a steady breeze Saturday, but winds are expected to diminish Sunday and Monday.  Monday will be the hottest day next week with a high of 95 degrees and a Feels Like temperature of 106 degrees.  

The home air conditioner will also be getting a work out overnight. Morning lows are only expected to dip into the mid-70s. The work week stays mainly dry with a 10 to 30 percent rain chance.  

The best rain chance looks to be Wednesday as a disturbance passes to the north but might weaken the ridge of high pressure dominating our forecast just enough to trigger scattered afternoon activity.
