Rain has been replaced by heat and humidity for the top weather headline. Hot and muggy weather will be experienced Friday and through the weekend. Highs will top out in the low to mid 90°s each afternoon with feels like temperatures ranging from 100° to 106° during the heat of the day.

Morning starts won't see much relief either. Expect lows to only dip down to the mid 70°s, meaning those air conditioners will still be getting a work out overnight. Don't forget the pets and kids in the backseat with any plans you may have over the next few days.

Rain chances will be near 0% Friday and Saturday before slightly increasing to 20% for the start of next week. High pressure will continue to dominate for the first half of the upcoming work week keeping the weather hot and mainly dry. Maybe by the tail end of the week, high pressure will break down some allowing for slightly better rain chances.

Everything remains quiet in the tropics, according to the experts at the National Hurricane Center.
