(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Today should not only be the hottest days of the week, but one of the hottest of the year so far.

We're looking at a high this afternoon near 98 degrees, with a heat index approaching 105.

Despite all this heat, at least the weekend looks a little better. It'll still be rather warm, but there's a decent chance for rain that right now extends into early next week.

Stay with KQ2's weather team for more on the storm chances throughout the weekend.
