Tropical Temps Before A Few Storms

Good Saturday, everyone. Heat and humidity continue to slowly take control of the weather, but our wet ground and lush vegetation is helping combat the heat. While the steamy temps will be the main weather driver for the weekend, storms will slowly begin to fire back up.

I mentioned the wet ground helping us fight the heat, but just how wet is the ground? The rainfall departures for the year are off the charts…

Many areas of the state are more than 12″ above normal, with some pockets of 20″ above normal. That’s absolutely nuts, but goes along with the pattern we have been forecast¬†now for months.

Temps today range from the upper 80s to low 90s for much of the state, but a dry ground would have given us temps much hotter than that. In terms of the humidity levels, those numbers will be sky high, making it feel much hotter outside. Heat index values can top 100 in the west, with mid and upper 90s central and east.

Isolated storms may try to pop…

Sunday is another steamy day, but the numbers may come down just a smidge with an increase in the storm threat…

Additional showers and storms will then carry over into Monday…

Any storm that goes up will put down some torrential rains. Outside the storms… it’s steamy. This is a trend that rolls on through the rest of your 4th of July week…

Tropical downpours may cause some issues before the week is over. Outside of any storm action, highs continue to run in the upper 80s and low 90s.

Enjoy your Saturday and take care.
