More heat, humidity on way but breezes should help

Breezes offer the only hope in the forecast this week for relief from temperatures that will feel hotter than 100 degrees.

"It's going to be a little breezy for the next couple of days," Tom Bradshaw, National Weather Service meteorologist said today. "That may actually help it not feel so bad. Just a little of a breeze take the edge off."

Winds will reach speeds of 15 to 20 mph, gusting as high as 25 mph, he said.

Dew points will remain high, meaning the humidity is sticking around, he said. That higher humidity will keep heat index values above 100.

"It's pretty uncomfortable, but not record-breaking heat by any means," he said. "This is very typical weather."
