Prolonged stretch of 90 degree heat expected through early July

Top Stories

While daily t-storms could pop-up, rain chances are limited going forward...

EVENING: Hazy Sun & Hot! Hi 90.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Calm. Lo 67.

FRIDAY: Hazy Sun, More Humid, Stray PM T-Storm. Hi 94.

Thursday’s high officially reached 93 degrees as we officially begin our streak of 90 degree heat. High pressure over the north central US typically provides a break from the hot conditions, however, Canada is experiencing record level heat which is why we continue to deal with a hot breeze from the north.

Rain will be difficult to find during our hot stretch. Our best chance for a brief shower or storm arrives Friday when a cold front drops south into the state. I only expect stray storms to develop Friday evening before ending shortly after dusk.

The longest streak of 90 degree heat on record is 11 days. We expect the next 7 to 10 days to be near or above 90 degrees. Find ways to stay cool over the holiday weekend!
