Here’s how you can help those affected by the California wildfires

Low severe threat today, hot weekend on the way

LOW severe threat today, with flash flooding the main threat.

THUNDERSTORMS TODAY: Spotty showers start the morning and will continue off-and-on throughout the morning. The more showers and cloud cover we have this morning, the lower our severe threat becomes later in the afternoon. Regardless, we do have a low threat of severe weather this afternoon.

After a few thunderstorms late this afternoon, the main line pushes through after dark with high winds and heavy downpours.

On a scale of 1-to-5, we’re at a 1. Wind will be the main threat, will a low threat for hail and an isolated tornado. The bulk of the thunderstorm activity starts late in the afternoon and continues throughout the evening, even for a period of time after dark. Any leftover spotty showers wrap up by early Thursday.

DRYING OUT: We begin a warming trend Thursday. After those few morning showers, the humidity sticks around with temperatures topping out in the mid-to-upper 80s. We see a whole lot of sunshine for a good portion of the 7-Day Forecast, with temperatures hitting the low-90s to finish out the work week.

We stay dry with lots of sunshine, highs in the mid-90s this weekend. Our “feels-like” temperatures will approach 100-105 degrees on a hot, hazy and humid weekend.

HOT AND HUMID WEEKEND: We really crank up the humidity this weekend, with morning lows in the low-to-mid-70s. Afternoon temperatures make it to the mid-90s with “feels-like” temperatures between 100-105 both days. Mostly sunny skies dominate a hot, hazy, humid and dry weekend heading into July.

Have a great day!
