Severe weather is possible across the Northland Friday night and again Saturday afternoon/evening, coming to an end on Sunday.

Prepare for the heat and humidity this weekend

Not only will there be chances of strong to severe thunderstorms Friday and Saturday, but there will be a return of very warm and muggy conditions as well, especially for Saturday.

Heat index values (what it will feel like with humidity taken into account) will generally warm to the middle to upper 80s for portions of the region for Friday, but even warmer for Saturday.

If you have outdoor plans, be sure to plan for the heat and humidity in addition to the chances of severe weather. Drink plenty of water, even if not thirsty, and avoid strenuous activity during the hottest part of the day.
