Steamy Summer Temps Before Storms Return

Good Friday to one and all. We’re rolling our way into the weekend and we have a surge of summer temps rolling into town. This big jump in temps will carry us into next week, but thunderstorms are going to cut into that in a hurry. As a matter of fact, this pattern is taking on another stormy look in the coming weeks.

Today will feature upper 70s to low 80s across the state with a mix of sun and clouds. I can’t rule out a storm in the far north at some point this evening, but most of the area looks good.

This weekend will find temps deep into the 80s with a 90 possible in the west by Sunday. The real heat with this setup is going to be well to our west and north. The illustration from the European shows how the REAL heat stays way from us in the coming days…

You can see how the cooler air starts to flex some more muscle later next week into the following weekend. That’s when a deep trough tries to dig back into the east, pushing the heat into the west…

Ahead of that trough, rounds of showers and thunderstorms will begin to develop early next week, and continue to increase through the week. Some heavy rainers are a good bet with that setup.

After that trough digs in, watch the Gulf for something trying to develop…

Again, this is a pattern that may end up causing us some issues going forward.

Have a great Friday and take care.
