Well today will be one of the hottest days of the season so far and if we hit 90 it WILL be the hottest day of 2016 so far. It’ll be close.
A complex of thunderstorms will miss us well to the west today and we can expect a partly to mostly sunny sky.
I can’t rule out a passing shower or thunderstorm tonight.
More active weather is on the way for the end of the week. Thursday will feature a weak disturbance crossing the region and there can be fairly random showers and thunderstorms…with lots of dry time as well. Chance for rain in your back yard about 30-40%.
Friday’s thunderstorm risk is higher and there is also a threat for severe weather. This cold front is strong enough, will be plowing into plentiful moisture, and will be approaching at the “right” time of day that this will be a day to be “weather aware”.
The Storm Prediction Center has most of the region in the “Slight” risk for severe weather.
Of course we will have lost of updates over the next 48 hours.
The weekend will be a nice one. Saturday can still be somewhat cloudy, especially in the afternoon. Might even be a shower or two around with the secondary cold front. But it will be less humid.
Sunday looks gorgeous and dry. Highs in the upper 70s to near 80.
Temperature trends on the computer models show the weekend cool down but the classic mid July heat returns next week.
We need some rain and the pattern in the medium range may bring good news. The Climate Prediction Center shows decent odds of above-average rain in the 8-14 day period. Let’s hope so.
