6:20 pm
it to the bahamas. the consensus is maybe somewhere in the gulf. maybe next week donald trump into the tropical storm maybe affecting the gulf coast. we'll keep an eye on that. much more of a care for us than gaston. so here's hour it sets up tomorrow. a front stays to our north. we're hot and humid. so there occurred be that isolated afternoon storm about a 20% chance. the front kind of washes out on sunday. it went be as hot still 90. and i won't rule and it will be more of the same on monday. partly to mostly sunny skies. slight chance of isolated afternoon storm. forecast tomorrow, 94 december. we showed you before the break the heat indexes now, here's how they might look tomorrow afternoon. when we'll be in triple digit heat for everybody. as long as it stays below 105. hopefully we shouldn't get an advisory. that's when they put it out. on sunday, 90 degrees so not as
6:21 pm
i've got steamy tomorrow. and it will feel miserable but at least dewpoints drop into the upper 60s sunday and monday. then monday, 90 degrees. now if you're looking for some relief, i can't give it to you. next week in the middle of week we'll still be in the lower 90s. it tries to heat op again. i have a front coming true on thursday. might have to raise that chance of storms. we could use a little rain. we'll keep an eye on that. if that clears the state and doesn't stall out, we should get a little punch of cooler isn't that weird when we say we're going to get to normal to 86. so we're not, you know, we're not asking for much below normal temperatures but we don't like the 99. it's september starts as you said next thursday. >> thursday. we have some breaking news live look at i-540 and lumley. a mess out there.
