GOOD MORNING TO YA,
Another fine June morning out there as the Valley remains in the “comfortable zone”…for now. A partly to mostly sunny sky today with afternoon temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.
HERE COMES THE HUMID AIR
The muggy air that is off to our west now will get the green light to come east Wednesday into Thursday. Dewpoints will spike into the 60s and even near 70. Wednesday will not feature MUCH rain although the threat of a pop-up shower will be there.
Notice by Wednesday evening there will likely be some thunderstorms over parts of the Buckeye State. A couple of these can roam toward the Valley Wednesday night. Not impressed with the severe weather risk locally but central and western Ohio will be at risk. The Storm Prediction Center actually has an ‘enhanced” risk area from Chicago to Detroit:
We have a higher risk of thunderstorms Thursday as an upper-level low pivots southward. This feature can bring showers and storms at any point Thursday and severe weather is something that is possible….especially south of Rt. 224.
TRANSITION DAY FRIDAY
Better things are coming for the weekend and Friday will be our transition day. Dewpoints will lower by the afternoon and any residual showers will be mainly in the morning. Should be a pleasant evening.
WARM, GLORIOUS WEEKEND
Father’s Day weekend will be fantastic. Warm but with tolerable humidity. Loads of sunshine both days. Highs in the 80s. Enjoy!
Warmth will continue to build into early next week before the arrival of a midweek cold front. The sprawling, strong ridge of high pressure will be responsible for dangerous heat out West during the weekend. 120 is possible in Phoenix.
Look at this stretch of weather in Phoenix. Yikes.
Here at home…here’s a general guideline on what to expect. Mid/upper 80s for a few days Sunday-Tuesday.
