There's light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to this heat wave, but that light is still a bit in the distance. After 2 remarkable days with record highs into triple digits, today's readings will remain very hot, but a slightly more active Lake breeze should limit afternoon readings in our lakeshore counties to the upper 90s, while inland locations will once again top 100 degrees. The timing of a cool front's passage is key for how hot we get on Saturday. It's possible readings could rise quickly into the low 90s across parts of the area before relief arrives later in the day. Sunday looks much more seasonal. There are no widespread storms in the picture, only isolated ones later today and Saturday afternoon.
Have a great Friday and terrific weekend!
