It’s been a slow slide into summer this week, but we’ll really start feeling the heat Thursday afternoon and the rest of the week.

Highs on Thursday will move into the upper 80s and the increase in humidity will push the heat index into the low 90s.

Temperature and humidity both have been trending up over the last couple of days and it seems to be culminating with Thursday’s conditions.

There still a good amount of sunshine expected, although a few extra fair weather clouds will certainly be possible.

Looking ahead into the weekend it appears that the rain chances will inch up starting with isolated activity on Saturday and becoming more widespread on Sunday.

This will then usher in a very summer like pattern through next week.
