Afternoon update: Temperatures reach at least 90 for the fourth day in a row and temperatures rise Friday

* Excessive heat watch Saturday for heat index values ​​up to 110 *

Today the thermometer had a little more difficulty reaching 90 than expected, but we still managed to reach it for the fourth day in a row in the city, thus maintaining the heatwave. The next warm days will come easily. But first we will have a relatively pleasant evening once the sun is low on the horizon, followed by a decent night. A build-up to brutal heat begins tomorrow.

Heat wave: After another day reaching or exceeding 90 degrees, the city has seven such days this year and moved above average after a slow start to the season in the 90s. We appear to be on track to carry our total to at least 13 or 14 by next week, before a short break. Two weeks in the 90s is about average for the July 8 or 9 season. And by then, the numbers will probably have increased further.

Here is the outlook for a very hot weekend.
