    This weekend will be very hot with no rain expected. Instead of needing to dodge showers for any outdoor activities, you will need to "try" to avoid the heat.

With lots of sunshine expected in the morning, temperatures will quickly warm up. Already by lunchtime, it may feel like the triple digits.
