Monday, July 12 Overnight Forecast

Weather

Summer heat has been reluctant to show up so far this month. After a hot Friday last week, the heat made a full retreat with temperatures Sunday and today well below normal. In fact, high temperatures over the past couple of days are more typical for mid-May versus mid-July.

Clouds and showers have played a role in keeping temperatures unusually mild. They’ve been the result of a trough positioned over the area. The trough will lift out by Tuesday opening the door to drier, sunnier, and hotter weather.

For the rest of tonight, skies will continue to clear. With less cloud cover temperatures will get cooler by morning with most spots dipping into the low 60s.

There could be some patchy fog to start the day Tuesday. The morning sunshine will quickly warm temperatures into the upper 70s by late morning, climbing into the mid to upper 80s during the afternoon. Skies look mostly sunny west to partly cloudy east.

Hot weather will set up shop for a few days Wednesday into Thursday. The pattern looks mostly dry too. A few isolated showers may pop up in the afternoon heat to the east of Hwy. 65 Wednesday and to the northwest Thursday. The heat will peak on Thursday with afternoon highs in the low 90s.

The heat will retreat again Friday through the weekend. The jet stream will buckle again sending a trough into the Eastern U.S. This will push a cold front into the area. Initially, the front will stall before getting a push across the area on Sunday. The result will be scattered showers and storms Friday through Sunday.

It looks like severe weather chances will be minimal through this active stretch of weather ahead. The rainfall could be heavy though, at least in spots. And, there will be a risk of some localized flooding. Many areas could see 1 to 2″ with locally higher amounts.

Temperatures will be cooler too, at least during the day. Afternoon highs will be governed by cloud cover and rain, but low to mid-80s look common through the weekend.

The cold front will push south of the area by Monday. Clouds and showers will linger, gradually thinning out from north to south Monday afternoon.
