First Alert: Summertime heat building

(WWBT/NBC NEWS) - FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for Tuesday for the northwest Piedmont of Virginia. While dew points and temperatures are expected to be a bit lower Tuesday than Monday for most of central and eastern Virginia, there could still be heat index levels north and west of Richmond near 105.

Here is the Heat Advisory from the National Weather Service:

Weather for the 4th should be a little cooler with an onshore wind direction, so look for highs near 90 most spots during the day Wednesday, with temperatures in the lower 80s for evening fireworks.

As always, with any hot weather, don't forget to stay well hydrated and out of the sun as much as possible during these hot summer days.
