Shelby: More hot weather this week

Shelby: More hot weather this week

Expect extra hot conditions today with highs in the mid 90s. Feels like temperatures will climb to the triple digits, some reaching up to 105°. That can be dangerous even for those used to the heat, so drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks.

Mostly sunny and dry skies are expected, but an isolated pop-up storm can't be ruled out with this much heat and humidity around. A little more rain coverage returns mid-week. Any areas that do get rain may see temperatures a degree or two less, but most of the area will remain hot and dry.

The tropics are quiet and development is not expected for at least the next five days.
