Summer heat returns this week

WARMING UP:  We’re back to the summer heat and humidity after a bit of a break the past few days.  High pressure to our east will help to kick in more of a southerly flow.  This brings back the humidity and slowly turns up the heat.  Highs today are in the middle 80s under partly cloudy skies.  Tuesday we do upper 80s, and by Wednesday we’re in the low 90s.  Storm chances are at 20-30% today and Tuesday.  With better chances by late Wednesday as a front approaches.

3 Day Planner

STORMS:  An approaching cold front will bring storms later Wednesday.  These storms look to linger into Thursday.  Expect mostly cloudy skies with showers and storms Thursday with highs in the upper 80s.

RAIN CHANCES

WEEKEND:  By Friday, the front passes and less humid and less hot returns for the weekend.  Friday, highs hit the low to middle 80s under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.  Saturday is mostly sunny as well.  Highs top out in the middle 80s.  Sunday, we start to bring clouds back and the chance for storms returns as the day progresses.  Highs will be in the middle 80s.

Have a great week!
