TUESDAY (7/19) MORNING WEATHER BRIEFING

GOOD MORNING!

Can you feel the change? It is certainly less humid outside this morning and we have a beautiful Tuesday unfolding. Highs near the seasonal average of 82.

Meanwhile, the heat is building in the middle of the country.

Wednesday will be about the same, just a couple of degrees warmer. Dewpoints stay pretty low.

HERE COMES THE HEAT

The next change comes Thursday in the wake of a warm front. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s and dewpoints will rise as well. There is a small (20%) chance that the warm front sparks a shower or thunderstorm.

The Thursday-Sunday stretch will be out hottest of the season so far and likely our hottest in FOUR years. We generally consider a heat wave to be 3 or more 90+ days in a row and that is in our Friday-Sunday forecast.

A weak cool front may get close enough to spark spotty thunderstorms on Friday.

The heat should peak on Saturday. Heat index values may approach 100.

Models are consistent in showing the heat retreating early next week….back to just “typical” late-July conditions for us. Warm and humid.
