7:21 pm
to 106 and then the heat index on monday near 110. that's going to be the toughest day to get through, especially after a succession of three days in the mid-90s. so 98 tomorrow, 98 sunday, 99 on monday. we could hit 1011 of these days -- 100 one of these days. probably the best chance for a record will be on monday. heat index 106 tomorrow, drops briefly to 103 on sunday. doesn't get any cooler on sunday. gets less humid. this is what the heat index is, it's temperature plus humidity so humidity comes back on us on monday, boom, 107, and even next week with mid-90s, that's just enough to get us back into the triple digits for the heat index. 10:00 tonight, we are still 85 downtown, 81 in manassas, and 82 in fairfax. now, by morning we are going to be in the 70s, but inside the beltway we are talking upper 70s and barely below 70 downtown. by 10:00 we are back in the 80s.
