Metro-East News

The start of summer is just around the corner, but the metro-east heat came to the party early

News-Democrat

The metro-east will see mostly sunny skies with a high around 93 degrees on Tuesday — however, a chance of thunderstorms after 1 p.m. does exist.

Keep in mind, the heat index will make those Tuesday feel several degrees warmer than it actually is. And it’s not even officially summer yet – that doesn’t happen until June 21.

Tuesday night, the area will be partly cloudy with a low around 73 degrees.
