Extreme heat on the way

I am not calling for a 100 degrees, yet, but I am calling for 99 on Thursday. We have not broke the 100 degree mark in Dayton in 24 years and if we see enough sunshine I would not be surprised at all. Today will still be very comfortable with current temps near 50, but we will top out around 80 today...just like yesterday with low humidity. More sunshine tomorrow as we warm up into the upper 80's. Then the heat really kicks into gear with a high of 99 Thursday, 98 Friday, and then mid-low 90's for the weekend and early next week. So there is no cool down on the way and today will be the pick day of the upcoming seven. There is a very slim chance for a spotty shower or storm Friday and Sunday, but that is a very slim chance. With that chance we could have a few clouds, those days, which will also help shade us from the roasting sun. We could really use the rain, but not looking like much of it for the week ahead... possibly setting up to be one of the driest years we have had since the drought back in 1988... which is ironic that THAT is when we broke 100 degrees last, August 17, 1988. Get your air conditioner ready and have a good one!
