Biggest heat of the year is only temporary

Biggest heat of the year is only temporary

Thursday was the hottest day of the year in Memphis but storms and a front tomorrow will change things.
MEMPHIS-- The blistering heat seemed to choke the Mid-South today with heat index values making it feel like 104 to 110 degrees. We are currently at peak heating for the day, and the temperatures will soon begin to escape the upper 90s. However, the National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the Mid-South, and this remains in effect until 8 p.m. Therefore, please try to delay any outdoor activities until after this time and take extra precautions to stay hydrated this evening.

In addition, isolated thunderstorms associated with an approaching cold front are a threat to the area this evening and into tomorrow morning. These storms could be severe, which means strong winds, hail and lightning are possible. These will be overnight storms and occur late tonight into tomorrow morning, so please be aware of this severe weather threat. Please turn on your weather radios this evening and keep tuned to Local 24 for information about these storms as they move through your area.

This front will bring rain and clouds, but it will also usher in drier and cooler air. Although the heat is nearly inescapable today, we will soon be experiencing a much needed cooling trend. By Saturday, high temperatures will be around 10 degrees cooler than today, and the 80 degree temperatures will continue through most of the early part of next week!
