We have a have hot weekend with a good amount of sunshine. Make sure you are staying hydrated, wearing light clothing and stay in air conditioned areas. Please take care of pets and check on children and the elders. The UV index this weekend will also remain high so try to stay out of direct sun, frequently apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses.
Today look for mostly sunny skies as high temperatures reach the mid 90s. The record for ABE is 99 set in 1955 and RDG is 100 set in 2010. For tonight the skies remain clear as temperatures fall to the mid 60s.
Tomorrow also looks mostly sunny as high temperatures reach the mid 90s. The record for ABE is 95 in 1999 and RDG is 96 in 2010.
The heat sticks around for next week, so expect highs to soar into the 90s each day. Monday will be especially humid with a shower or thunderstorm later in the day. But the rest of the week is looking partly to mostly sunny.
