A Heat Advisory has been issued for Scotland, Clark, Hancock, McDonough, and Lee counties until 7PM Saturday evening.
A ridge of high pressure is allowing the temperatures to build and the humidity to climb over the course of the weekend. High temperatures in the low 90's, combined with the humidity, will allow the feel like temps to climb into the low 100's.
When it is this hot, remember to drink plenty of water and limit time outdoors. Keep an eye on pets and the vulnerable, and never leave kids or pets in parked cars.
Through the day on Saturday, skies will likely remain mostly sunny, allowing for the temps and humidity to climb. However, Saturday evening a few storms may try to sneak into the region. For more details, make sure to tune in to the next WGEM newscast.
