Several days straight of upper 90’s-upper 100’s will be likely through the next week, and possibly beyond. Some areas, especially in the Western 1/2 of the state, may make it to or even above 105-110 for highs during the next week! This heat may continue for not only this week, but possibly the week to follow. Below is the statewide 7 day temperature map, which is subject to change. May I please advise you all to NOT be outside unless you absolutely have to, and if you are outside, don’t be out for long. Don’t forget to drink lots of water, as well as wear sun screen and try to take a break as much as possible. Stay tuned to the Facebook page for updates on the extreme heat.
