Another Hot & Humid Day
The heat and humidity have been the big story all week long and it’s going to be the case for our Friday as well. Temperatures this afternoon soar back into the upper 90s and lower 100s under a partly cloudy sky. Feels like temps this afternoon will soar back into the mid to upper 100s which is why we have Heat Advisories and Excessive Heat Warnings in effect through this evening. You’ll want to remember your heat safety precautions and think about your pets as well as your elderly friends and family. It’ll be great to find a pool to beat the heat or hit up the lakes.
Cold Front Moves In
The plus is a cold front will move in today and it will bring a bit of relief. Not only will it knock our temps back a bit but it will also bring us a chance for isolated showers and storms. It’s not looking like a washout at this point but if you have outdoor plans, you’ll definitely want to monitor the latest. Highs Saturday will be cooler, falling back toward seasonable levels for this time of year. We’re expecting numbers around 90° but the humidity will be a lot lower making it feel much better. Temps then look to rise back into the low to mid-90s Sunday afternoon along with plenty of sunshine.
Heat, Storm Chances Return
Temperatures continue to surge upward as we progress into early next week with the upper 90s and low 100s on the table again for Monday. The heat looks to develop ahead of another cold front that moves in by Tuesday. This boundary brings the potential for isolated showers and thunderstorms. On the backside of the front, drier and cooler air takes over into our Wednesday. Highs will be near normal for this time of the year under just a few clouds. Depending on how far south the front gets, a stray storm or shower are possible but chances are looking slim.
Have a great day!
