First, let's define a heatwave. Temperatures need to be at 90 degrees
or warmer for at least 3 days in a row to be classified as a heatwave. This
could potentially happen this week.

Hot air moves in from the south at the start of the week. Then a warm front
moves through with hotter air towards the middle of the week. With a second
warm front for the end of the week with extremely hot weather.

Temperatures reach near 90 degrees starting Monday with partly sunny skies.
Overnight, lows reach the mid 60s.

Warming up into the lower 90s for Tuesday and Wednesday with a few
thunderstorms. Overnight, lows only dip into the upper 60s.

Even hotter for the end of the week. Highs in the mid 90s for Thursday and
Friday. Partly sunny skies Thursday, then a few thunderstorms Friday.

Eventually cooling off into the 80s by Saturday and Sunday with a more
widespread rain.

But the humidity is going to play a huge role in what the temperature feels
like. Throughout the week, the humidity is going to be increasing. Increasing
humidity makes it feel hotter than the actual air temperature.
