A significant warm-up is expected by Thursday afternoon as our next upper-level trough of low pressure begins to drag a surface low...trailing cold front...and warm front into the area. The warm front will help push temperatures back into the 80s and 90s for most of us Thursday afternoon...with triple-digit heat possible in spots. More heat and humidity will spread across 10-11 Country on Friday with highs in the 90s...along with an increase in dew points...and that combination should translate into heat index values of 100°-or-higher in some locations.
