Racine County is once again under a heat advisory. The National Weather Service issued the alert early Saturday morning; it begins at noon Saturday and expires at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Temperatures are expected to hit 90 or higher. When combined with sun and high humidity, heat indexes will most likely hit triple digits again. The culprit is a warm front that will stick around through Sunday night when a weak cold front arrives with less humid air.
“It will be hot again Sunday even though a weak cold front will move across from the west,” the advisory reads. “The front will bring less humid air.”
Cooling centers are available around the greater Racine area to neighbors who don’t have air conditioning at home. Click here for a full list of locations.
There is good news on the horizon, though. NWS predicts a return to more normal temperatures next week with drier air.
