Heat wave continues in the Tri-State

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The excessive heat continues with an EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING for Hamilton County and a HEAT ADVISORY for the remainder of the FOX19 viewing area until Friday evening.

The dome of high pressure will continue to bring sultry conditions to the area today with mostly sunny skies and highs topping off in the low 90s. It will feel more like 102 through the afternoon hours.

A stray storm could pop at any time this afternoon, but most of areas should remain dry. Tonight, look for mainly clear skies and lows in the low 70s.

We'll do this again Friday, but relief is on the way for Saturday as a cold front moves in and brings cooler, drier weather. Showers and storms will be likely along the front Saturday afternoon.
