Thursday, August 20 Morning Forecast

Weather

Temperatures warm up today, skies stay sunny

We’re starting out pleasant again this morning with temperatures in the lower 60’s.

Temperatures will warm quickly Thursday with readings topping out in the mid to upper 80s. Humidity levels will once again remain low.

A pocket of very dry air in the atmosphere that is keeping the current pattern so dry will hang on through Saturday. The only story will really be the building heat. Humidity levels will remain low but afternoon temperatures will continue to climb. Highs will be back in the low 90s by Saturday.

The trough that has kept the pattern cool recently will lift out of the East by the weekend. The summer ridge that has been torching the West with heat will spread across the middle of the country. This will lock us into a hot and mainly dry pattern.

The atmosphere will moisten up a bit by Sunday and there will be some upper-level energy sweeping southeast into the area. This might be just enough to get a few isolated afternoon showers going Sunday or Monday.

Tuesday and Wednesday look dry and bright. Temperatures will remain hot Sunday through Wednesday, topping out in the low to mid 90s each afternoon. Lows will be warmer too with morning lows generally in the upper 60s.

Rain chances may perk up some by the end of the week or the following weekend as the atmosphere moistens up and the upper-level ridge weakens.
