(WALA) - As hot as it’s been, we are going to get even hotter in the coming days. Highs on Saturday and Sunday are going to top out in the upper 90s or the low 100s. Heat index values will go higher than 110 degrees at times.

Rain will be in short supply, so there will be little relief from any showers.

This is dangerous levels of heat! Stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, and simply stay inside through the middle of the day if you can.

Going to the beach? You can find some relief there, but still be careful when you’re not in the water. There won’t be much wind and it will be very hot even under an umbrella.

When will this heat wave end? Unfortunately, this is an historic heat wave and there is no end in sight through at least the next week. Models do begin backing off the temperatures by the last week of June, but it’s too soon to give that too much credit.

A tropical disturbance will move into the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico the next couple of days. Development risk is low, and it’s not headed our way regardless.
