The heat continues.

Thanks to a high pressure ridge expected to build in, temperatures Tuesday through Thursday will get to the low 90s. Heat indexes, meanwhile, touch the mid-90s under mostly sunny skies.

There is only a slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm.

More humidity should arrive for the weekend. Chances of a thunderstorm increase to 25% Friday and 30% Saturday and Sunday. The increased afternoon cloudiness may drop temperatures a degree or two, but the heat index will rise to the upper 90s.

There is no sign of relief at least through early next week.
