The heat is on across the Valley, with highs soaring back into the mid-90s, and when you factor in that high humidity, heat index values could be as high as 105 degrees! Good news is that unlike yesterday, there will be some relief this afternoon, with showers and thunderstorms expected to fire across the area. If you have outdoor plans, its important that you keep that umbrella close, along with the WTVM Weather App!
