Hottest Weather Yet To Come??

Good Thursday everyone. I hope that you all had a great 4th of July. 

We start to transition into a stormier and cooler time frame for later this afternoon through Saturday. A cold front will work it's way into the area from the Northwest giving us ample chances of showers and storms on Friday and Saturday as the cold front slows down and breifly stalls over the area. Temperatures also will be a bit cooler as they are anticipated to reach the low to mid 80's.

Then we watch another high pressure move into the area. This high pressure could be strong than the one we've seen over the past several days. At the current thinking, the weather models are indicating that we could see the hottest weather we've see all year starting early next week and carrying through the weekend. Both mid range weather models are pretty consistent with the Euro & GFS only being off by a few degrees.  Only minimum shower and storm chances is the current thinking. So it will be hot and dry most everyone.

So make sure you have a place you can cool off next week, and please remember those heat safety tips! 

 

We will continue to monitor the situation and update as needed.
