Extreme Heat!!!

By: VTG, 4:29 PM GMT on August 07, 2007

High pressure has built over the area, and has brought in some very hot temperatures! Highs are in the mid 90's through lower 100's over most of the Southeast, with heat indices above 105 in many places. This heat is expected to last until Thursday, with a little relief arriving on Friday. Rain chances are low in most places, so it doesn't look like there will be anything to help suppress the heat :(
