Mostly sunny

Expect to build up a good sweat when getting outside today in Polk County as the National Weather Service calls for sunshine and clouds, but temperatures up to 93 on the thermometer, and feeling like over 100 across the area. Expect more of the same for the start of the weekend, and the potential for the return of rain by the end. 

Hurricane Florence made landfall overnight in North Carolina and continues to impact the southeastern seaboard today. Potential rain impact from the storm once it reaches further inland is slightly possible based on the latest computer models generated by the National Weather Service.
