On top of the hottest temperatures of the year, the coal region is going to be swamped in the muggiest weather, too.

High temperatures predicted for the weekend:

  • Friday: 93
  • Saturday: 97
  • Sunday: 94

Add in the humidity and National Weather Service predicts the following Heat Index values:

  • Friday: 110
  • Saturday: 110

They say Saturday will be the hottest.

And during the weekend-long Excessive Heat Warning, there’s no relief at night. The mugginess will persist and feel oppressive. Low temperatures in the mid-70s are expected overnight through the weekend.
