Six day stretch of 90 degree heat, spotty storms this week

Top Stories

Better storm chances later this week...

EVENING: Warm & Muggy. Temps In The 80s. A Stray Storm.

TONIGHT: Warm and Muggy. Low 72

TUESDAY: Hot and Humid, Stray PM Storms. High 94.

Sunday’s 90 degrees and Monday’s 91 degrees is just the beginning of a six day stretch of 90 degree heat. The hottest days are approaching, with many areas likely warming into the mid 90s for the middle of the week.

A building ridge of high pressure will increase the heat and the humidity for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Our weather team is forecasting 94 degrees for these days, but it will feel closer to 100 with the added humidity.

Storm chances will be limited with weak forcing this week. Each day will likely see stray storm development and a few areas will receive some needed rain. There is a chance that Thursday evening and Saturday evening could see a better chance for more scattered storm development, so check back with our weather team for more details. At this point, any sign of storms will help the recent dry conditions and also provide some temporary relief from the heat.
