Tuesday and Wednesday nears record heat, storm chances increase Thursday

Forecast

Storm chances increase by mid-week...

EVENING: Warm and humid, a stray shower. Temps in the upper 80s.

TONIGHT: Warm and humid. Low 75.

TUESDAY: Very hot, humid with a stray afternoon/evening downpour. High 95. Feels like 105.

Monday’s official high of 96 was only two degrees shy of tying the record high of 98 degrees. We continue very warm and humid overnight with a low of just 75 degrees.

Tuesday and Wednesday continues very hot and humid with afternoon temperatures reaching the mid 90s. Adding the humidity will result in a heat index over 100 degrees. Storms chances remain very limited over the next two days until a slow moving front finally arrives on Thursday.

Rainfall amounts remain uncertain, but we have high confidence of widespread showers and storms Thursday and Thursday night. Some leftover showers are possible Friday, but additional rainfall will be limited.

The holiday weekend remains a little difficult to pin down. At this point, we know it will feel more comfortable with highs only in the low 80s. We are still trying to determine if an upper level low pressure will produce a few showers and a storm over the weekend, or if this low clears to keep much of the weekend rain free. We should know more by Wednesday so check back.
