Storms Challenge The Heat

Good Thursday, folks. Our mini heat wave is trying to finally kick in over the next few days, but storms are going to try to tame the temps. Those storms will then increase this weekend with a much cooler pattern settling in for next week.

Highs today range from the upper 80s to low 90s for many. The southeast may struggle to get to 90. Heat index values will range from 95-100, with low 100s in the west and far north.

With all the heat and humidity, I can’t rule out a storm or two going up…

Friday looks very similar with highs in the 90-95 degree range across the state with some triple digit heat index numbers showing up. That said, storms may try to bubble up in the afternoon and evening, especially on the northwestern sky…

That could certainly act to keep our temps in check. Saturday will be another hot and humid day, but storms may have a slightly greater impact on temps…

A strong cold front will then roll our way later Sunday with showers and storms increasing, and should carry us through Monday…

Recent model runs are spitting out the potential for some decent rains from now through Monday…

Much cooler air then settles in here for next week as a northwesterly flow kicks in. Check out the GFS forecast highs for Tuesday…

Wednesday morning lows…

Another system will then try to slide in here with some showers and storms by the end of next week.

Make it  a great day and take care.
