The heat will stick around for the foreseeable future as a high pressure ridge allows for war, dry air to be funneled into our region.

By next weekend we could see a bit of a break as temperatures drop back down to around the seasonal mark.

During the heat wave it is important to practice good sun safety and always wear sunscreen and stay hydrated.

Another thing to be cognizant of is the likelihood of increasing fire risks. As vegetation dries out in the dry heat fire fuel increases and any stray spark cold be the beginnings of a wildfire.
