Nice Start to the Week — Near-record Heat Tomorrow

Posted at 10 a.m.

It’s been a nice week weather-wise in Fairfax County. Temperatures have been warm, but hey — it’s August.

Summer wants to remind us that it’s still here and temperatures today will rise to near 90°F (Fahrenheit). Tomorrow it will be mostly sunny with a high near 94° — but the combination of heat and humidity may push heat indices to between 100° and 105° degrees Friday afternoon and early evening.

During extremely hot days, there is plenty you can do to stay cool; resting for just two hours in air conditioning can significantly reduce heat-related illnesses. Take in a movie, stroll through a shopping center or visit one of the Fairfax County Cooling Centers.

Also, please remember — Never leave a pet or child in a parked car.
