Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini looks at how hot and muggy we get and how to stay safe.

 Another round of 90 degree days will arrive just in time for Father's Day weekend, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

Saturday and Sunday are both expected to be in the 90s. Unfortunately, the weekend will also be very humid. Dew point temperatures will climb to almost 70 degrees, at that level you will notice the stickiness in the air. Despite the increase in heat and humidity, skies stay dry all weekend.
