The third - and most-intense - heat wave of the year is underway, and the National Weather Service has issued an "excessive heat warning" for the weekend.
Temperatures won't threaten any records, but heat indexes could reach triple digits the next days, the weather service says.
The warning is in effect from 11 a.m. Saturday until 8 p.m. Sunday as the atmosphere brews a steamy, sultry air mass laden with water vapor.
One indication of the high humidities is the fact that nighttime temperatures won't make it below the low to mid-70s; water vapor inhibits nighttime cooling.
We don't have much room to complain.
